Kryptonian

 

In 2011, I was invited to help develop the Kryptonian language for the Hollywood film Man of Steel (2013). Although, I have researched and taught about created languages for some time, this was my first created language of my own.  Click here for the UBC media release.


You can find more information about my work on Kryptonian in these interviews I’ve done since July 2013 (see below). You can also visit the website http://kryptonian.info to find out more about the history of Kryptonian over time, including my recent creation of Kryptonian for Man of Steel.
