Reader K.D., who earlier alerted us to a case of hieroglyphic prescriptivism, has sent in this fascinating note:
In the recent Ridley Scott Alien-prequel Prometheus Proto-Indo-European plays a small but significant role. I won't go into too much detail in case you don't want it spoiled for you, but in an early scene one character is learning the language via a high-tech language tape, and recites part of Schleicher's fable. Much later, in a pivotal scene, the same character speaks a language which is not named, and for which no translation is given; I'm fairly certain based on the earlier set-up and the actor's intonation and accent in the two scenes that it is intended to be PIE.
As you've documented on Language Log, a lot of recent movies and TV series have made use of linguists to create various exotic languages for fantasy and historical settings, and Marc Okrand created a PIE based language for Atlantis: The Lost Empire in 2001, but the cast list of Prometheus doesn't list any linguistic consultant as far as I can see. There's a lot of speculation online about what the character said (eg. http://www.prometheus-movie.com/community/forums/topic/6820), but I haven't seen any discussion as yet of the fact that it's probably PIE, or much conversation about language generally in Prometheus, despite the fact that it plays a fairly crucial role in the story. I've attached a small mp3 file of the sound clip; here is my attempt at transliteration, although I'm sure you can improve on it:
/tax manamai kɛna murtuste:da puifa hɒniʔtam sas tatir kre:da/
There is some on-line discussion of this here and here, but K.D. seems to have gotten at least as far as anyone else. Perhaps one of our PIE-fluent readers can give us an inter-linear translation, or further information about what language it actually is (or isn't)?
Update — As supplied by aquavit in the comments, here is the recitation of Schleicher's Fable:
The comments on that page have to be the most hardcore nerdiest comments I have ever read in the history of my life.
Brofist to those guys. I wish I was in on their club.
