About Tushtæk Tushtæk is a auxiliary language i made which was originaly only going to be used in a story, but i felt like some people could see what non-latin languages, in its normal form, could teach them about language. at first, tushtæk was going to be an easy language that could show people how language could work, however, as tushtæk got influenced by languages such as ubykh, taa and thai, it started to get more and more complicated with its tones and accents, mostly with the vowels, and it eventually, at least during my research, to have the largest phonetic inventory in the world, with over 290 sounds, most of which are vowels. of course tushtæk is not ment to be written in the latin alphabet, but i have not yet learned how to make a conscript font, so that will have to wait.

UPDATE: tuštæk no longer has as big of a phonetic inventory as it used to, removed clicks, tones and others, the alphabet may soon be updated.
