It is written in horizontal rows, right-to-left, and top-to-bottom.

Geminate consonants are shown as ;, placed before the geminated consonant.

A central dot / is placed between words, and sentences begin and end with a . symbol.

While their shapes have been modified over time, it is still fairly clear how each phonetic feature has been symbolised.
