This reference to ten fictional languages includes links to how to learn Aklo, a Nadsat lexicon and a handy Parseltongue translator.

A few days ago I mentioned that I am being hired (probably) to do the vampire language for "Blade II", the sequel to the Wesley Snipes movie from a couple years back. The vampire language for the original movie was designed by Vicki Fromkin, a professor emerita in my department who died last year. Unfortunately, her notes on the language were lost, so I'm having to start basically from scratch, with my only guide being the nippets of vampire dialogue from the original movie.
