Philip replied: If it had been, it wouldn't have been very suitable for the actors in the films.... ==== While I concur with the gist, there are some languages that aren't pronuncable by humans but which nonetheless appear on film. Wookiee and R2-D2's system of beeps come to mind, for instance, although I doubt either of those have an underlying conlang system (as opposed to "whatever the sound editors came up with at the time"). -- Paul
