- Starting from the right top and going clockwise:
a (a), e (e), i (i), o (o), u (u), y (y)
h (h), f (f), th (θ), s (s), l (l), r (ɹ).

- The shape of the letters represents the openness / effort of the mouth area when pronouncing the vowels and consonants.
- The criteria of selection were breathability, sound and diversity. So the letters can be pronounced permanently since they are aspirants, fricatives or liquids and they can be spoken without having to stop the breath / air flow.
- Further, the selection is based on sound. So the aesthetics are also key.
- However, the selection is also meant to feature a certain variety. Thus differing sounds are represented.
- All letters are writeable in one piece.
