Who makes up all these languages used in the tv shows? Is there one almighty language writer in the tv business or do they hire people trained for this?

I really like the language in The 100, some sounds derived from aussie slang. One guy just said something that sounded like "flag the dingy down" for "signal the boat" it highly amuses me. Hushup is already an aussie term for shut up. I wonder where language will be in a few hundred years time. Especially if there is an apocalypse between now and then.

Have you ever learnt or do you know any tv languages? How and where have you used them? Could you make up your own useable language?

There I was thinking of the language in TV shows that makes the air turn blue.
