1. Destruel, Matt. Reality in Fantasy: linguistic analysis of fictional languages.

Degree: MA, Linguistics, 2016, Boston College

This research paper aims to compare fictional languages, in particular those created in works of science fiction, to natural languages. After an introduction to conlangs in general, and to Quenya, Klingon, Dothraki and Na’vi specifically, Greenberg’s linguistic universals will be used to test their resemblance to natural languages, and suggest a taxonomy of fictional languages. Advisors/Committee Members: Margaret Thomas (Thesis advisor).

Subjects/Keywords: conlangs; constucted languages; fictional languages; greenberg's universals; language universals
