Tung Script Tung Script

The Tung Script was devised by Richard Marsland as an alternative way to write English. It was inspired by Tolkien's Tengwar script, and also by Korean Hangeul. The shapes of the letters are partly based on the shapes made by the tongue and lips when producing the sounds. The right side of the letters represents the front of the mouth, their height represents the height of the tongue, and a diamond indicates an unvoiced letters.
