Claiming you've made up the langauge isn't a get-out-of-grammar-free card. (Official made-up languages also have structured grammar: one of our reviewers was nitpicky enough to check the Kingon was linguistically correct in a Star Trek story...)

Yep, we actually had this happen. It was the third Choose Your Own adventure book we had been sent that month. The other two didn't claim they were new though.
