Added DiffLines:

** ''Dwarf Fortress'' takes it even a step further. There are two other languages, for Kobolds and Angels, which have their vocabulary generated fresh for each new world, according to rules that produce a roughly consistent phonology. While the lexicons for Angel languages are just as extensive as the others, they still have no grammar and are not functional. Kobold language is not actually translatable; it's just used to produce names for kobold individuals, places, and so forth. This is true in-universe, as well. No other race can communicate with kobolds, thus diplomacy is impossible.

* The recent relaxation of the language restrictions in the EurovisionSongContest has led to several entries in fictional languages, including "Sanomi" by Urban Trad (Belgium 2003) and "Amambanda" by Treble (Netherlands 2005). Belgium tried it again in 2008 with 'O Julissi'(by Ishtar). The first finished in second place, just two points behind the winner, while the other two didn't get past the semifinal.

* Creator/DianeDuane's ''[[Literature/YoungWizards Feline Wizards]]'' books feature Ailurin, the language of cats. It is also slightly unpronounceable, but justifiably so, since the words are intended to sound like the meows and hisses of cats.

* KarenTraviss took the rhythmic chanting over the ''VideoGame/StarWarsRepublicCommando'' game menu and developed (indeed, is still developing) it into Mando'a, the Mandalorian language, for use in her Republic Commando novels. Close attention is being paid to etymologies and the connections between words... on the other hand, grammar has been quite deliberately tossed out the window, under the reasoning that the ''Mando'ade'' are soldiers and don't give an ''osik'' how you speak as long as you get it across.
