Ancient Language (Eragon)
The Ancient Language is an a posteriori fictional language created by Christopher Paolini for his book series, Eragon. The language in-world is closely tied with magic, and reportedly it is impossible to lie while speaking this language. The Ancient Language has heavy influences from Old Norse, though Paolini has admitted to creating certain words himself when they were needed.
Some words from this language appeared in the movie adaptation of the book.
