I know, I know. :v This probably comes up every now and then, but has anyone deeply invested into understanding their language? Not the written/symbols part, by the way. The spoken portion, I know I heard some in Covenant, before David did his thing on the Engineer city. Maybe it meant run? Anyhow, I have a Google Docs with information I've collected across multiple places on it, maybe someone interested could get a kick out of it. So here ya go. :P

You're most welcome NonsenseBody. Thank you for the topic.
I recommend the Weyland-Yutani Report Lawrence of Arabia. There are some errors with dates and details but not many. What I like about the report is the amount of small excerpts that help stitch together the backstory. It is all pretty good but the sections on the Prometheus mission and Fiorina 161 are some of my favorites. And it has a great timeline.
Also, a lot of the intelligence images shown comes from helmet feeds and event reports written by characters such as Michael Bishop...so it has a bit of a corporate-view feel to it.

Lawrence of Arabia - True! The problem is what Ingeniero mentioned plus the thing you write - it collects the info from the movies and sources but contradictions can't be explained by it. As an example, it can't answer the mystery around the LV moons, zeta-reticuli, etc.
But it is useful and very OK! :)

I too am fascinated by the alien language, both spoken and written.
The engineer speaking scene was my favourite scene in the Prometheus film, even if it was cut, it really added to the atmosphere, because that engineers voice was deep and godly sounding.
Was there ever any translations of the writings on the walls and urns?
