What is Klingon?

Klingon is an artificial language that was invented for the American science fiction series Star Trek.

When “Star Trek – the Motion Picture” hit theaters in 1979, the Klingons, one of the main alien races in Star Trek, spoke some words in their own language. When they returned a few years later, a linguist was commissioned to develop their own language for the Klingons. The following year the official Klingon dictionary was published.

Over the years - i.e. through films and series from the “Star Trek” franchise – the language was expanded and a fandom emerged that was seriously concerned with learning and speaking the language. Klingon is officially recognized as a language and is used in various situations, so that in addition to Star Trek fans, so-called Trekkies, linguists also deal with the language.
