Yes, but it's a fictitious language, hence the 'scare' quotes. I guess it
should have been placed differently, e.g.
A new 'language' called Klingon has been added to the Google database.
I can imagine some geekery sitting around and composing a Klingon dictionary
(I will /not/ volunteer) just for the heck of it. Then, they will slowly
learn it and go around talkin' trash.
