Perler and Circular Gallifreyan

I wonder if I can combine my new favourite craft (fusion beads) with circular gallifreyan… only one way to find out!

Is there anyway I can learn Gallifreyan?

Absolutely there is!

Go to http://www.shermansplanet.com/ the second last link on the right is to the guide and alphabet that is commonly used by more and more fans.

However, it should be noted that this is not an official guide (i.e. it has nothing to do with the BBC, or the circular Gallifreyan symbols as seen on the show). This guide simply shows you how to write English words in a different format.

If you have a search on Deviant Art, there are some different examples of how it might be written, where words are translated using approximate meanings.

A Slow Start…

As with many Whovians, the first thing I want to see in Circular Gallifreyan is my name!

So for any fellow Emma-Louise’s, here it is…

Edit: Ahhh I did indeed forget the dots on the L! Wouldn’t mind but I tend to do each word separately before I put them together, and I have the dots in my original “Louise”. Lol. Thanks for pointing it out, http://dustlightandrain.tumblr.com/

Edit 2: Fixed picture :D Now says Emma-Louise, rather than Emma-Jouise :D

Circular Gallifreyan

So, this is my new blog, dedicated to all things circular Gallifreyan (as designed by Sherman, see link at the side).

The reason I wanted to learn this are that a) I’m a big nerdy Whovian and b) I wanted to design my next tattoo using the language.

I’ll update the alphabet and guide pages when I get a chance, and hopefully will get to pop up some new words/sentences or requests once a week, or so.

For now, I’m going to grab some paper, a pencil, a compass, a ruler and an eraser, the essentials for any budding circular Gallifreyan writer/translator :D
