Jonathan Brown, 50, of Furzton spent 12 years learning the fictional language of the alien race from Star Trek films.
Then, after being appointed as the lead "linguist" on a CD for others wanting to learn it, he found a different way of dealing with words.
He said: "It helped me identify my problem and found a way of working with my dyslexia."
Their language was invented by Marc Okrand, for use in some of the films.
But rather than just inventing a few words to make them sound alien, he devised a complete language, with its own vocabulary, grammar, and usage.LINK
