Grant Goodall publishes article on constructed languages

Faculty member Grant Goodall published an article entitled “Constructed Languages” in the open-access journal Annual Review of Linguistics. The article examines philosophical languages of the 17th century, international auxiliary languages of the late 19th and early 20th centuries, the languages for film and television that started to become common in the late 20th century, and the artificial languages for psycholinguistic experiments that are widely used now. The article argues that each of these types of languages presents interesting research questions and deserves increased attention from linguists.
