Our common object of desire is the word, the letters, the writing. I observe them from the perspective of a discipline that exists within the chain of wills and knowledge that keep languages alive and visible: typography design. In this field of study, typography assists language in making alphabets accessible to its user readers/writers. Speech and writing are different forms of communication, each with its virtues and limitations, its internal codes, and specific fields of study, but in constant interaction.

During this meeting, I would like to tell you how I approach a typeface design project that addresses the issues of a language or how the search for this methodology led me to develop chronologies of typographic representation of nasal vowels and plosives in Guaraní vocabularies and grammars.
