I've always wondered what Klingon speakers think of the Whorf-Sapir hypothesis.

Well, those are words I've never seen put together like that.

Drago going on about how he is going to fark up the white men in their metal suits is the greatest monologue in a made up language, ever.

Meh.  I just send my mediators to speak with their mediators.  They'll make up an acceptable language on the spot, probably based on the Trailing Trojans Recent tongue.

Fark yeah. The Dothraki are god damn brutal. I wish things had gone differently with Drago.

Does EVERYTHING at conventions need to be a compound word? Conlang? Cosplay?

Use your words, kids.

The actor and the delivery are what makes that awesome though, not so much the language

Oh wow, you're absolutely right. I blame wisdom teeth pain and the Venture Brothers.

I conlang, and have for about 20 years of my life since grade school. It is really dorky, yes, but the term has been around for decades so I take offense to the comment above conflating it with Cosplay.

I went through a conlang phase, yes.  Decided I liked construct state and went all out.

For a language creation society, couldn't they have come up with a better word than 'conlang'? It sounds totes retarded, for reals.

/seriously, it clunks

How about "conlinguistics?"

/it takes a steady tongue

If I was going to learn a conlang it'd be Baronh but most of the reference material for it is in Japanese. And my studies in Japanese and French kinda tailed off once I wasn't actively taking classes for either.

Both of these.  I don't care how clunky it is--I'll always call them constructed languages (if it's necessary that I distinguish them).  Conlang sounds as stupid as cosplay.

Worf's name is an honored one among our people. But Sapir is a sniveling petaQ! No man can cloak himself in another's honor.
