THE DLF LOGO

The DLF logo was recently redesigned to better reflect our overall purpose and to accompany the 2007 redesign of the website. The DLF name appears at the top, and our motto, tsahvtahv t'hevtee (Life in Words) appears at the bottom in D'ni. In the center, a gold pen nib bridges between the surface and the D'ni cavern, symbolizing the essential role language plays in helping us understand the ancient D'ni civilization. It also stands for the power of language to pierce through barriers and open up the deepest part of our imaginations. The representation of the D'ni cavern is borrowed from the bahroglyphs, emphasizing the importance of not only D'ni studies but also study of the Ahrotahn languages to gain a full perspective on the D'ni and their legacy.
