I want to get some of your opinions of fictional languages in fantasy books. I'm currently writing a book in it there are a race of people who have an old somewhat dead language. The language is no longer spoken en masse, but certain words have survived and persisted through time. I feel as though I might be going overboard in the amount of words I've created. They still use the "old" words for Man,Woman, Children, Sword, City, Sun, Wind, Moon, Rain, Family, Mountain, Nearly every animal/plant. These are just a few. I should note that I don't use this language constantly but rather when the situation feels right, or directly pertains to a custom or ritual dating back to when the "old" language was in use. So I'll just ask what's your view on invented languages? Do you prefer none at all? or rather one to be hinted at but only a handful of words actually used (A Song of Fire and Ice). Do you prefer a full glossary of random words that are barely mentioned in the story (The Inheritance Series)? Any feedback is appreciated.
