Not long ago, a rune was discovered in the Cholistan Desert of modern day Pakistan. A team of archaeologists excavated the area and discovered evidence of an entire language, which they dated to the 10th century BCE. After investigating the site, linguists determined that the rune signified “heart,” inflected to the nominative singular female form of the word. The linguists decided to name the language “Duwen,” after the rune. What follows is the first attempt to codify their findings.
