Other Languages in Sci Fi / Fantasy

KlingonThought we’d go back to a fun topic for me – the use of different languages in speculative fiction.

These can go from the relatively mundane – sprinkle a little celtic into your Fantasy novel, throw in a little Italian into your sci fi, or maybe a little Russian with your werewolves from the old country?

Or it can be more exotic – think Star Trek’s Klingon, or Tolkien’s dialects in Middle Earth.

So writers, how do you handle other languages in your sci fi, fantasy or paranormal? Whether it’s an Earth Language or Alien? Readers, do you like a little Italian (or Klingon) in your sci fi?
