Ethnically, no, it is not a real language because there are no real Klingons, no native speakers. However, linguistically, it is nearly a fully formed language, with dictionaries and institutes dedicated to the study of it, infact it is among the worlds most popular fictional constructed languages. If you are asking if the actors are actually speaking Klingon rather then grunting random sounds, that is a tough question, when the language was originally invented for the Motion Picture, it was made up of random sounds, but later the Klingon words were cataloged as a language for consistency. Usually when used since then, the dialogue is in actual Klingon, although the actors and writers often mess up the grammer or pronunciation of the lines. During some major Klingon stories, such as The Undiscovered Country, they have Klingon language experts on set.-Cpthunt (talk) 06:54, August 19, 2012 (UTC)
