The Tai Le script (also known as the Liek or Dehong alphabet) is used to write Dehong Dai in China, Myanmar, and Laos. (Dehong Dai is a language of many names, including Tai Le, Tai Nüa, Tai Mau, Tai Kong, and Chinese Shan.)

The modern form of Tai Le script was developed in the 1950s. At that time combining diacritics were used to indicate tones. In 1988 spacing tone marks (U+1970 - U+1974) were added to replace the diacritics.
