Tikamuli is one of two scripts used specifically for writing the Sunuwar language spoken in Nepal and Sikkim. Tikamuli is used primarily in Nepal, and Jenticha is used primarily in Sikkim. In both places, Sunuwar can also be written in the Devanagari script.
The script is an abugida; every consonant contains an inherent vowel, which can be modified by appending vowel diacritics to the consonant or silenced by adding a virama below the consonant. There is also one independent vowel letter which represents /ə/. Word-initial vowels are written with this letter and a vowel diacritic if appropriate.
Vowel length marks are also used. Any written consonant can carry up to one vowel diacritic and one vowel length mark.
Tikamuli uses script-specific digits from 0-9, and Latin punctuation.
