Atlantean (Dig Adlantisag) Dig Adlantisag (Atlantean language)

The Atlantean language was created for the film Atlantis: The Lost Empire by Marc Okrand, who worked with John Emerson, a designer at Disney, to produce an alphabet for the language. The language is spoken and written by the people of Atlantis in the film and is integral to the plot.

Okrand based the Atlantean language on a hypothetical reconstruction of the language spoken by the early Indo-Europeans using sounds common to modern Indo-European languages and some not found in any of them. He wanted it to sound like a real human language, to be easy to speak and to be unlike English. He was also inspired by Biblical Hebrew and Greek and Latin, as well as other documented and reconstructed ancient languages.
