Description: How are constructed languages (‘conlangs’) like Dothraki from “Game of Thrones” invented? In this writing-intensive course, students learn about both past and present conlangs: their histories, goals, grammars, storylines, and more. Additionally, students think critically about the linguistic arguments motivating the storylines behind these conlangs.
