This episode, we’re chatting with linguist David Peterson, who constructs languages for properties like Game of Thrones, Elemental, House of the Dragon, the MCU, and many more! He weighs in on Aurebesh as a written language, as well as Binary, Shyriiwook, Gungan, and other spoken languages. It’s a fascinating conversation with someone who clearly loves talking about language. Enjoy!

In Star Warsologies, hosts James Floyd and Melissa Miller combine their love of Star Wars with their keen interest in all things academic by asking experts about how their field is represented in a galaxy far, far away. It’s a monthly podcast about science and other fields of knowledge and Star Wars!

Or listen on YouTube with relevant screen shots and photos (coming soon)!

Some images of the Super Bomber text David likes are here and here.

You can check out David’s website and buy his book “The Art of Language Invention”
