This was just a request that someone pointed out to me for all those of you interested. A potential collaborative project might be to form a basic form dictionary of single-word symbols in Gallifreyan, and to possibly even develop a way to write out minor phrases. Just an idea for any language enthusiasts...

I think the general idea would be to post examples or explanations to grammar/form, then have other people discuss it or add commentary.

Just a thought.

Hmm to add to this there is the "ancient timelord language" that Riversong wrote in "hello sweetie".
So it would be interesting to explore the develpment of this language and how it evoled into the timelord language it is today (circle thingies).

I think the newer one is a bit like korean (I don't speak or know how to write korean, but I know a little about it etc.) where each of the little symbols are sounds and put together it's a word. Maybe those biggers circle are sentences and each tinier circle is a word?
I haven't had much time to dwell on this, but I'll work on it when I have free time. :D

Would be nice to know how on earth can those OHG symbols say 'Hello Sweetie'.

I know that :icongirl-on-the-moon: has a list of symbols from somewhere (possibly made up herself) based on the Doctor's TARDIS computer.

We should make a collaborative list of all the symbols we can think of and work at them with the grammar etc. it would be a big group deviation! (a really big one)
I would love to work on it. I'm a language enthusiat *has invented two langauges out of boredom* 8D

That's what I'm intending... a collaborative project for all the linguists out there.

I just have to wait for people to get involved, and hope that they don't forget...
