The Telap were a xenos species that developed an advanced civilization at least a million years before M32, but were exterminated by the World Eaters Space Marine Legion during the Great Crusade. Members of the Telap species had two tongues, each of which was longer and more prehensile than a human's. As a result, their language, Telapiye, could not be completely re-created by a human tongue.[1]

Some of the books produced by the long-extinct species came into the possession of the Thousand Sons Space Marine Legion, and at least one survived the Burning of Prospero. Ahmuz Temekh was fluent in the language, though even his enhanced physiology could not produce the full range of its sounds.[1]
