Denobulan script

Denobulan was the language spoken by the Denobulans of Denobula.

Doctor Phlox told Feezal that Hoshi Sato was like a "language wizard", and Hoshi and Feezal had a brief conversation in Denobulan. (ENT: "Stigma")

While Dr. Phlox tried to capture his Pyrithian bat, he was swearing in Denobulan. (ENT: "A Night in Sickbay")

In 2154, while jogging through the halls of the Enterprise, Dr. Phlox was singing in Denobulan to himself (and Porthos). (ENT: "Doctor's Orders")
