I'm glad you could take some time to answer some questions. First off congratulations for your work with the novelizations.
My question is: How arose the idea of create a language for the Predators in your novel "Alien versus Predator: Prey", of whom was the idea? and in which language was based?
Beforehand Thanks for answer this question.
Well, my daughter and I wanted a language that had a crisp and somewhat gutteral, harsh sound to it, more like German than say, Italian, so the terms we made up for the Predators were based on how they sounded when spoken aloud. No specific language, but a kind of tone, not necessarily limited to any one.
(If you look at some of the short curse words, you can see that they have a kind of anglo-saxon ring to them ...)
I think we both devised these, more her than me, but it's been thirteen or fourteen years since we wrote the novel, so I couldn't tell you who came up with what, exactly.
The yautja were obviously a martial culture, and we wanted their speech and thought to reflect this.
