What is Klingon?
The School of Literature, Communication, and Culture, the Georgia Tech Library and the School of Modern Languages invite you to a special event. As part of the Writing & Communication Program Speaker Series, Dr. Marc Okrand will deliver a lecture titled, "What is Klingon?" Okrand will be speaking on his experiences as a linguist and in creating languages, particularly the Klingon language.
Dr. Okrand, who received his Ph.D. from the University of California, Berkeley, where he studied Native American dialects, is most recognized for inventing the Klingon language used in the Star Trek movies and most recent television shows. Currently, he works on closed-captioning for the hearing impaired with the National Captioning Institute.
