New worlds and beings often entail alternate modes of communication and understanding. Posing speculative circumstances, lands, and creatures, works of science fiction and fantasy are therefore particularly conducive to linguistic reimaginings. Indeed, numerous speculative fiction narratives foreground a linguistic component: seemingly peculiar languages and unusual linguistic constructions drive characters to grapple with notions of communication, alterity, and humanity.
