Delason is the language of the fictional Mediterranean island of Salamon, the creation of Nizar Habash, a Palestinian computer science Ph.D. student at the University of Maryland College Park. The phonology of Delason is a mixture of Spanish and Modern Hebrew and its vocabulary is drawn from about 20 mainly Indo-European and Semitic languages.

The Delason alphabet is based mainly on Japanese kana and kanji and, in addition to the letters, includes a number of ideographic symbols. There are two main styles of writing: the traditional engraved style ponta marcini (top row below) and the modern style ponta navoni (second row below).
