Catherine Bettenbender by cbettenbender Catherine Bettenbender by cbettenbender
I've made an entire working language (more of a code, really, but language sounds cool) based on circular Gallifreyan in Doctor Who. It has a real structure, but I'm not going to give that away. ;)

This one says my name, Catherine Bettenbender, and the date really tiny up in the corner. I'm just a bit vain. I had to write it out!

Let me know what you think! And don't be too harsh. :)

Disclaimer: I do not own Doctor Who, BBC does. Please don't sue me, I love you.

Are there three letters per circle?

If you ever decide to divulge your working language- I promise I'll keep it to myself. I'm a 47 year old language geek. My daughter is into Minecraft and Minetest. I'm trying to spark interest  in languages. Do you do Lojban?

I think I want my daughter to be like you when she grows up! Maybe that's a terrible thing to say though, hmmm I love my daughter terribly. I do admire your genius and devotion to science though!

Just thought of something... you haven't done numbers yet, so... how can we read the date?
And I suppose that in P.6 you'll add something like "Use double syllable-circles for the first syllable in a multi-syllable word", right?

When you write names, does the name start with a double circle.

cbettenbender Featured By Owner Feb 12, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
Yes, the first syllable of the first and/or last name has a double circle around it.

1) That is extremely cool.
2) I'm guessing one main circle per syllable? *Quietly trying to decode in the most not-suspicious way possible* I think I have the letter 'e' down. :P

Yes, it is based on syllables. I really, really, really need to get on posting the cipher. I'm letting you all down! :x you can add me on Facebook (Catherine Bettenbender) if you want to talk about it and check your decoding for now. :)

Do you have a way to do numbers? So instead of writing out one hundred and twenty-seven, you can just draw 127.

Yes, I do have a system of numbers. It's not as nice as I would like it to be, but I'm working on it. :3
