Tazhai - an alternate, older Romulan Language
We regret Tazhai is no longer available, David has sold it to Hollywood -
Platinum Studios. You may see it in a future movie, or not. This leaves

Legal Stuff: Platinum Studios reserves all rights of publication, in
any media, throughout out the universe, for all time. Without their permission
no one may
publish, distribute, give away, or sell any form of Tazhai in any way on
any media - neither Internet, BBSes, disks, or paper.

I can now offer CHAKOBSA:A Dune® Language designed by

Note: I, Tommy, slightly edited the introduction and added HTML
Also: 3 Dune® TrueType fonts are avaiable on the SFFONT page.
