  • The inventor of languages for HBO’s Game of Thrones explores language creation in sci-fi, fantasy and gaming. A must-read for language lovers!

    From master language creator David J. Peterson comes a creative guide to language construction. Peterson begins with a brief history of constructed languages, from Tolkien’s creations to Klingon to the thriving global community of language construction. Then, using examples from a variety of languages including his own creations, Peterson offers a captivating and lucid overview, providing a basic foundation of essential linguistic tools for inventing and evolving one’s own lexicon.

    Along the way, behind-the-scenes stories lift the curtain on how he built languages for television series and movies like Dothraki for HBO’s Game of Thrones and Shiväisith for Marvel’s Thor: The Dark World, and an included phrasebook will start fans speaking Peterson’s constructed languages.

    An inside look at a fascinating culture and a perfect entry point into an art form as old as civilisation, THE ART OF LANGUAGE INVENTION is a wild linguistic adventure that will have readers ready to rub shoulders with horse lords and dark elves.
