I’ve been getting a lot of people asking how I write in Gallifreyan and there’s a link to a info page here but I did make a more in-depth tutorial below.
For starters, take a look at the linked page above, it shows you how to write each letter individually. The more complicated part is putting all the letters together into a word or the words together into a sentence.
To show you how to put letters together to make a word, I used my own name as an example.
The word starts with the first letter at the bottom and continues around the circle counterclockwise.
You can combine the vowels (a or e) with the consonants that come before them (r or ch) like this:
but I think that looks too scrunched together. For words with less letters, I like to separate them to make a better look but it’s really up to you!
Once you’ve figured out how your words look individually, whether it’s your name or a sentence, it’s time to put it all together!
As with letters in a word, the words of a sentence will be read starting at the bottom and rotating around counterclockwise.
For example, my name is Rachel Marie Wilkinson so all together it looks like this:
The words of a sentence are contained within two circles; the outer one is plain, just a circle, and the inner one can be embellished however you like. The bumps I put in between words don’t mean anything, they’re just to fill in empty space. Any words that involve letters with outwardly extending lines (see Marie or Wilkinson) will be attached to the inside circle.
The link I mentioned earlier (here if you don’t want to scroll back up) talks about punctuation and how you insert that into a sentence if you’re interested.
I hope this helps! Feel free to ask me if you have any specific questions!
