Flying by the seat of my pants a bit here, but I'll guess it's something like: din's'i"n de'maphsep /diNS1n dEmAfsep/ Each apostrophe is an acute over the previous letter, each quote sign is a trema over the previous letter. FWIW, in UTF-8 it's dińśïn démaphsep /diŋʃɨn dɛmɑfsep/ Interlinear: din's'i" - n de'ma - phse - p tonuge - G4 build - G4_Acc - G5 For script, if you like, you can use a mix of Greek, Coptic and Hebrew: delta iota ayin shai upsilon nu - delta eta mu alpha phi lunate-sigma epsilon pi Thus: ΔΙעϢΥΝ ΔΗΜΑΦCΕ� Preferably in a Coptic or other similar-ish uncial font or in masonry- carved romano-greek all-capitals. You can happily substitute Cyrillic sha Ш for Coptic shai Ϣ if your favourite font lacks the latter. Paul PS: I know I had another word for "language", and more to the point one which I have used on-list (which ought to have made it canon), but I can't find it in my notes, and I can't be bothered to search the archives. I suspect Thagojian has as many near-synonyms as English or (almost) any other language.
