Klingon (tlhIngan Hol) is the language spoken by alien characters in the Star Trek movies called Klingons. The first few words had been invented in 1979 by James Doohan ("Scotty") for the first Star Trek movie. In Star Trek III: The Search for Spock, the director and writer-producer wanted the Klingons to speak a real-sounding language, so they appointed Marc Okrand to invent the Klingon language. Besides the invention of few alien-sound words, he also invented a complete language, with its own grammar and vocabulary. Marc created uncommon consonants and combinations of consonants in natural languages in order to make it sound alien, such as /q͡χ/.
