Review: The Art of Language Invention: From Horse-Lords to Dark Elves, the Words Behind World-Building

The Art of Language Invention: From Horse-Lords to Dark Elves, the Words Behind World-Building The Art of Language Invention: From Horse-Lords to Dark Elves, the Words Behind World-Building by David J. Peterson
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

While I don't see myself conlanging any time soon, this was quite a fun read (and a pretty good book if you are interested in linguistics but don't know where to start!) There were quite a few examples from Game of Thrones (which I guess is the most well known example of conlanging on modern television) and quite a few from Defiance.  There were other examples from another CW show that I am not familiar with (Star-Crossed) which I guess I'll be on the lookout for to see if it's any good :-)
