I'm not alone in thinking alignment languages are silly

(edited: fixed line breaks, Arrgh!)

So if I may, where did the idea for aligment tongues come from? Do you see them as fully fleshed out languages?

"As D&D was being quantified and qualified bu the publication of the supplemental rules booklets. I decided that Thieves' cant should not be the only secret language. thus alignment languages come into play, the rational being they were akin to Hebrew for Jewish and Latin for Roman Catholic persons.

I have since regretted the addition, as the non-cleric user would have only a limited vocabulary, and luttle cound be conveyed or understoon by the use of an alignment language between non-clerical users.
