About Taum Tyaeum's main purpose is to be sung, not spoken (though of course it can be). It is not a true musiclang in that the words/phonemes and the note they are sung in have no relevance to each other. Ideally, any song should be able to be translated into Tyaeum and sung easily.

A few specific choices have been made in order to make Tyaeum more musical sounding or to make it easier to understand when listened to:

1. It doesn't have tones

2. Where stress is placed in a polysyllabic word is unimportant.

3. Vowel extension also has no effect on the meaning of a word.

4. All syllables only end with consonants that can have an extended sound (l, m, n) or a vowel

5. Voiced/voiceless consonant pairs never share the same vowels

6. It uses a standard 5 vowel system (a/i/u/e/o)

As for personal aesthetic choices, the phonetics were inspired by Korean, however, inspiration to create a syllabary came from Japanese, which is why you may see some similarities. Despite its inspiration, Tyaeum is a priori. Tyaeum is more limited in phonemes than many syllable based languages.
