Invented Languages on ‘The One Show’ tomorrow, 22nd July.

We were consulted today by BBC’s ‘The One Show’, the midday magazine programme, which will be doing a slot on invented languages on tomorrow’s show.

This relates to the release of the new ‘BFG’ movie, based on the book by Roald Dahl, in which the titular friendly giant speaks in his own language, ‘Gobblefunk’, entirely invented by Dahl.

There is a brief Gobblefunk dictionary here, but viewers of tomorrow’s programme will no doubt get to see an exclusive excerpt of the BFG speaking, taken straight from the new film.

Regrettably, this programme will be for domestic UK viewers only.
