About Télufakaru Télufakaru (lit. "writespeak") is an engineered personal language that tries to break one of the most common rule of language creation: speak it before you write it.

The spoken language and writing system of Télufakaru are a single, inseparable entity. Télufakaru script is a logographic abugida where symbols of each syllables on a word are written concatenated together in a dynamic but predictable manner that makes every combination of syllables its own unique glyph. This unique nature of the script is what becomes the basis of the language's lexicon construction: a word for something is the combination of syllables that visually best resembles it. The implication of this system is that a native speaker can immediately visualizes something he's never seen before, just from hearing its name.
