Seminar paper from the year 2021 in the subject English Language and Literature Studies - Linguistics, grade: 1.0, Technical University of Chemnitz, language: English, abstract: In the last years, constructed languages have experienced a rise in popularity. Star Trek, The Lord of the Rings, and Game of Thrones feature constructed languages that have since been celebrated, examined, and learned by fans.

The comprehensive definition will be a result of examining the terminology and history of language construction. Humans have been concerned with language for centuries. With this, language has not only fulfilled its purpose as a communicative medium, but it has left an impression on generations and nations.

When God saw their arrogance, he decided to confuse their languages so that they were unable to proceed with their project and instead scattered all over the earth
