I'm still really confused with A... I just don't get it! I tried to write a sentence, and I was wondering, could you take a look at it, see if I did it right?! And if not, tell me how to, because I absolutely love this and I really wanna learn to write like this! :D

I'm struggling with the O a bit. If I'm interpreting this diagram and the "A Guide to the Gallifreyan Alphabet- Loren Sherman" PDF accurately, "up" is toward the center of the word circle, and "down" is away from the center of the word circle. According the Sherman's PDF an O falls above the mid-line of the previous consonant, but in the above diagram the O following the J seems to be below the mid-line, which I would have interpreted as an A. What am I missing? :-?

When O is attached to a consonant, it can be anywhere "on" the letter ring, so long as it intersects. When it's on its own, it is placed inside the word circle like a small J.

Never mind - perspective shift. What I was interpreting as the mid-line of the letter circle is actually the word circle. Thanks for the great diagram(s)!

Question, professor! For the B and J stems, how come the inside vowel O is added to the edge of the stem while the edge vowels E, I, and U are added into the inside of the stem? Shouldn't it be the other way around, with O always being inside a curve while the others are always written on an edge?

Nope. E, I, and U are always in the center of the letter.

oh, okay, it makes more sense when i think of them as being in the center of the stem instead of in relation to the main circle. thanks! ^^ my first attempts have been going quite well, thanks to this great chart

If a "y" sounds like the "ie" sound, would you use the written form of a Y, an I, or an E?

You would use Y. Good question though! :D
