John Swansburg, Culture Editor for Slate, says:


We've got a quirky piece pegged to the Star Trek release that I thought Boing Boing readers might really like. It's a piece on Klingon, the language, by a linguist who studies invented language. It turns out that Klingon is really, really sophisticated, and incredibly hard to learn — a combination of Hindi, Arabic, Yiddish, Turkish, and Mohawk.
