Script is written top-to-bottom, left-to-right. The letterforms are presented in groups of initial, medial, and final forms. If a ligature does not look exceptionally unwieldy it is encouraged (see the text for examples). No spaces between words; the final forms have descenders that serve as word separators. Vowels come in simply vowel, /j/ + vowel, and /w/ + vowel, respectively (the three groups of three columns). The title marks are often omitted in-text; if not, they are likely to be the simplified four-dot forms, with the four diamonds being used for titles of books/chapters/sections/tables, &c., or for names in isolation, for example on monuments or name tags.
