Very interesting! I am compiling information about conlangs in movies, and was not aware of this one. Currently I know about some 50 movies that make use of a reasonably complex conlang.

That is also very interesting, since I have been using conlangs myself to teach grammar and linguistics, although I have done so at a much more basic level, in primary school. I cannot say that I understood much from the analysis document, however. I imagine that it requires some verbal instructions in order to be useful.

Thanks a lot! Very much appreciated. Do you also know where I could get hold of the special fonts that are used in the documents (SILSophia IPA93 and Doulos SIL)? Fredrik
