Taliska is a constructed language devised by fantasy writer J. R. R. Tolkien. It is one of the many fictional languages set in his secondary world, commonly known as Middle-earth, as part of the Lord of the Rings universe.
Adûnaic, the language of Númenor, later displaced Taliska. During the writing of The Lord of the Rings, Tolkien toyed with the idea of making Taliska the primordial tongue of the people of Rohan who spoke Old English in his translated setting of The Lord of the Rings.
