Prometheus Engineer language in updated alternative version of A Grammar of Modern Indo-European

As we announced yesterday at Dnghu, our book A Grammar of Modern Indo-European, Third Edition has been revised, and the new version of the Proto-Indo-European lexicon has been added and it is available now online and printed at Amazon, without the Etymology section – it is therefore a cheaper, more handy manual.

But, more importantly, we have added a new section and published a parallel Prometheus Edition – Engineer language of the grammar, that includes unprecedented content with discussion of Prometheus’ recreated Late Proto-Indo-European dialect of the Prometheus/Alien/Predator fiction universe. There is also a printed version at Amazon. As you probably know already, our grammar is a Late Indo-European dialectal grammar, so it wasn’t difficult to add some information on ‘Engineer’ for fans.

We have opened a blog dedicated to the language, and a new dedicated section in our forum for discussion on this recreated language, and on the universe shared by Alien, Predator, Alien vs. Predator, and now also Prometheus franchises.

In my opinion, given the dialectal nature of the language as we know it now, the richness of the reconstruction on which it is based, and the specialized group that Ridley Scott contacted to work on it, it could be the most interesting conlang ever – or reclang, since it is recreated from a reconstruction…

I searched in Wikipedia and I found out that a lot of linguists made very interesting studies about it. But still, it was a little delusion for me, because there were a lot of discussions for “insiders”, about phonetics, linguistics,… Read more »
