Considering we just merged with Fantasy, I think we should rename the alien-languages tag to fictional-languages. It'd describe the category just as well and be more inclusive, allowing for elvish and its ilk.

What do you guys think?

Let's just merge with the existing tag - shorter is better than longer, and the "fictional" is somewhat implied by the fact that this is a Q&A site for fiction.

    This also clears up confusion about fictional languages that became 'real' ones.... Like all of them. :P

    No-one seems to object, so I've done this. Revert if you disagree!

That makes sense. Tags on SE sites are generally more useful when they're inclusive.
