Fictional Languages: Mangani

Well, I didn’t remember this one when I first heard but then I made some research and I realized that such a language exists in books! It is a sound from our childhood. 🙂

As Listverse says, Mangani is the language of the apes from Edgar Rice Burrough’s Tarzan novels, and also the word by which the apes refer to themselves. It is described as being composed of guttural sounds that represent nouns and basic concepts. However, the written lexicon, as provided by Burroughs, is much more complex and made of real words, similar in pronunciation to many African languages from the area in which the books take place.

I hope this little information takes you to your childhood, as well. 🙂
