        The Secret Life of Scientists & Engineers | Paul Frommer

        Meet linguist Paul Frommer in this video profile from NOVA’s “The Secret Life of Scientists & Engineers.” Paul was exposed to foreign languages at an early age in Hebrew school. But it wasn’t until he volunteered for the Peace Corps in Malaysia, teaching in both English and the Malay language, that he chose linguistics as his career. His expertise in the construction of languages eventually landed him a job in Hollywood working for director James Cameron to invent the “Na-vi” language spoken in the film Avatar. This resource is part of the NOVA: Secret Life of Scientists & Engineers Collection.
