The Velika font (Velika is the Tirelhat word for "alphabet") includes a few
extra diacritics that aren't used for writing Tirelhat, but are reserved
for representing the extra consonant and vowel sounds in foreign names. You
could write foreign languages phonetically that way, but that wasn't the
intended use. The Ljoerr script (one of the Gjarrda alphabets) was
developed to be able to represent the sounds of any human language by
encoding combinations of phonetic features (such as "voiceless", "velar",
"stop").
