Taenglaa

History


Taenglaa used to be a much more elegant language, with fewer characters before the Quarryn lost their eyes. Over time, the characters of the language were simplified into straight lines that the Quarryn could feel, while simultaneously adding new characters to represent the inflections used to convey what facial expression and body language no longer could.

Pronunciation taehn-glA

Tanglaa is similar in appearance to many runic alphabets of early Scandinavia. Each character is composed of straight lines without curvature to be easier to tell apart, and easier to carve/write. It is one of two languages to use every vowel and consonant in the phonetic guide.

Pronunciation


20 vowels and 27 consonants make up Taenglaa. As mentioned earlier, it is one of two Omneuttian languages to use every vowel and consonant in the phonetic guide. There are a couple interesting rules to Taenglaa’s vowels, firstly that any word that starts with a vowel uses its doubled or plain letter pronunciation. For example, a word in Taenglaa starting with the letter U makes the sound ‘you’.
