Gallifreyan Guide P.4: Links and Sound Ordering by cbettenbender Gallifreyan Guide P.4: Links and Sound Ordering by cbettenbender
This is the fourth page of my guide to Circular Gallifreyan, or at least the language/code I invented based on the way that Circular Gallifreyan looks in the TV show Doctor Who. While I do not own any rights to the show, and this is purely for fun as a fan, I really would not appreciate someone claiming my writing and its structure and claiming it as their own. Feel free to use it, by all means, but please give me proper credit. :)
Here is an index of the guide so far:

P.1: Basic Structure and Intro. to Sounds
P.2: Consonants
P.3: Vowels
P.4: Links and Sound Ordering
P.5: Additional Sound Notation

There is more coming soon, as I am only about half-way done with the guide, but I just wanted to upload the first half. With this much, you should be able to get a grasp on how to properly form words. The next sections are going to explain sentence structure, verbs, and more. I'm also going to have one page that acts as a cipher which will be a condensed version all of this to help you remember it better.

NOTE: That little up-side-down semicircle you all see next to the syllables is a directional notation. Because the language's structure means that a word could mean something completely different if read sideways or up-side-down, that little symbol should always be facing that way to tell you which way to read it. I will be adding that to the text properly later on.

Anyway, I hope you all enjoy it, and if you have any questions at all, feel free to comment on any of the pages or send me a private note. Thank you for reading! Allons-y!

What do you do in cases where 2 consonants occupy the same space?

Some examples  -  rock, yacht, sip, game, fib

To correctly write the word "Car" or "Rack" would you have to divide it into two syllables to fit the symbols into the correct position within the syllable circle?

How do you know how many lines there have to be between the consonants and the main circle? And how must I place them?

There's two things I'm going to try and do with your guide.
1: Translate what is written on the baby crib on the episode "Demon's Run".
2: Write a get-well card to my uncle, who is sick and a Whovian.

I'm not sure that the one in the show correlates to mine, unless you mean that you want to translate the words themselves using my version. That would be cool.

And that sounds really sweet! I'd like to see it when it's done, if that's okay. :)

It says what it translates to right after he takes it out.

It says River Song, the only way the people of the forest can write Melody Pond.
