shegyíbyim [ʃeˈɟi.bʲəm], the word for a reed pen. In Old Kharulian this referred to the tools used by early Muipidan scribes to carve characters into clay. As writing technology improved, the word was applied in turn to the reed styli used by later Muipidan scribes, and then to the reed pen when papyrus became commonplace.

Shegyíbyim gives a taste of Kharulian’s distinctive consonant-switching morphology; its oblique case forms all use the stem shegyimp-.
