New words for new worlds.

Invented languages are increasingly part of fantasy and science fiction properties in all media. Along with costuming, set design, and good CGI, well-constructed languages add an effective, realistic touch to an immersive media experience. They can also give fans another way to interact with a property.

Xeno·Glossaria is the invented language consulting project of William S. Annis. I have been inventing languages for the better part of 30 years. I created the Beta language for the RTS game Grey Goo. I'm also one of the regular hosts of the Conlangery podcast.

We're past the time when computerized noises, mangled recordings of human speech, and decorative apostrophes are sufficient for an “alien” language. Contact me to discuss a better language for your project.
