Could it be the special form of the D'ni language they used to make Descriptive Books?

Looks like retahldahn, or some arrangement of those letters. It could be retahlndah, but I think the former is more likely.

KathAveara, Karkadann, you may be correct on both parts. I found this in Teledahn age I just couldn't get a good grasp on it. I like your idea of maybe special script for a descriptive book. :)

Could you explain/show how you did this please. I came up with the, d ah, part easily and may be the T the rest didn't come together for me .
Big thank you :)

any other ideas out there from anyone ??

It somehow looks like an anagram of (re)Teledahn :)

Personally, I still like the idea of garohevtee being logograms, but who knows.

Oh, if it's in Teledahn, then it almost certainly says teledahn.

:) ok let's just say forsake of argument,that Teledahn is an english vulgarity of the word, and
your transcription of the word is retahldahn or retahlndah is the correct form. There could be a meaning in the word?? re=the, tah-l or tahl=? d=again, or dahn =?? ect. What is your peoples thoughts ??

I think there might be a good possibility that this is a form of descriptive book writing,just thinking of the Yeesha symbol at the cleft.

The D'ni equivalent to a cartouche

This. It's the only reason I'm actually able to guess at the ordering of the letters.

Also, I'm 100% certain it says teledahn.
