I did this with B-G-2-3 (Blue-Above-Green-Below) some
years back. In appearance they are somewhat akin to
the Horta of Star Trek fame, but they speak by
varrying the color and pattern of their skin. I chose
to write the language by assigning a one-letter code
to each color and a one-number code to each pattern.
There was some thing akin to onomotopoea in the color
choices of some words others seem to be utterly random
assignment. Unfortunately, etymology is a science
that never developed among the B-G-2-3ese.
