Teletubese is the language used by Teletubbies. It is a SOV language that is often topic-comment structure. It is meant to sound babyish.

I think I'm joking but I'm not.

BackgroundEdit

Hello and thank you for viewing my page. Previously I did a rough draft of a language called Komet, but I felt like doing something different and that hasn't really been done on this website. I'm also trying to do this as a distraction from personal issues. I had this idea a while back and none of it is based off of accuracy to the actual show, just my imagination. Please don't be mean to me. If you'd like I'd love it if you left your feedback on the talk page.
