- The words "and" "for" "of" "the" and "with" may be written without a space between themselves and the word that follows, or without a space between themselves and a word sign that comes before them.
- The word signs "an" "as" "at" and "it" may be written close-up with the next word.
- Two-celled word signs may be written close with the word that comes after them.
- The words "a" and "have" can be written without a space and the word that comes before.
- "Come" "enough" and "in" may join a following word sign or a word sign with added letters or prefixes.
- The other lower signs "am", "be", "is", "are", "been", "were", "his", "was", join the word that precedes and the word that follows. They can also join the word that follows if they are preceded by opening punctuation marks or the word that preceeds if they are followed by closing punctuation marks.
- The sign for "am" can begin a sequence if followed by the word "I".
- The signs for "are" and "is" can begin a sequence if followed by a word sign or compound word sign without any word preceding them.
- Only the sign for "the", or a lower word sign, can join a word beginning with "be", "con", or "dis".
- The signs for "to", "into", and "by", may be joined by a lower word sign only.
- If the meaning is made clearer, do not omit space.
- A sequence may not be formed if it ends up creating a separate, unintentional word.
