Taliq script

  (Redirected from Taʿlīq script)

The taʿlīq script (In Nastaliq: تعلیق) is a script style in Islamic calligraphy designed specifically to satisfy the needs of the Persian language. It was widely used, especially in Persianate societies, until being replaced by the Nastaliq script.[1] Taʿlīq is also generally used as the name for the Nastaliq script in the Turkish language[2] and often in the Arabic language.[3] The Nastaliq script is also inspired by Ta‘liq.
