Perhaps Klingon. :)
Has anyone ever done this? I know some Neopagan groups
occasionally indulge in dead language Revivals (a la modern Hebrew),
but I can't think of anyone creating a language with the exress goal
of creating a subculture.

Hmm. To me a word like paralang would just be another term
for 'argot' or 'jargon' though I admit my mind isn't quite able to get
a handle on what *exactly* 'paracultural' means.
Perhaps I'll create a liturgical language when I get my cult
