Direction for a right AH


Hi fellows!
A basic question, but important:
What is the best point to start drawing an AH circle?
According to the drawing I enclose, my way of writing it is 3-1-2-4.
Is the right movement?
(Just in the case, you have to write for instance “I” alone.  In Spanish, it’s very common, the vowel “A” means “to”)
What abour if you have to write any dipthong?

  1. The a circle is written as if you were to write the letter a, but without the tail, so it is written counterclockwise.  According to your diagram, you would start in between the 1 and the 2, then go 1 – 3 – 4 – 2.  Remember that the circle is more like an oval in reality.  Again, think of an a , without the tail.

  2. Thanks for your comments. Usually, we are suggested to write strokes in a clockwise motion, for that reason I asked.  Over all, I have discovered the brief form for "etico" ending, like político in Spanish, and politic in English.  Remember, I'm a Simplifier, tasting Anniversary.   When first I saw a friend of mine writing Gregg (She learnt DJ in High School, in both languages), I recovered an old Pitman book my aunt had kept in forgotten boxes.  I learnt Pitman, but my unpacient youth pushed me to learn Gregg, so I asked her to teach me her shorthand, when she gave me the basic strokes, I usually wrote vowels following the wrong direction, because I thought as a Pitmannian.  (This is not an advertisment).  Pitman shorthand indicates precisely the motion where the circle must be written, because if you write (for instance) in a counterclockwise motion it means an "S", but if you do it in a clockwise motion, then it would mean "N – S".  So the motion is very important.  My friend didn't care about it, because she never knew Anniversary, where Gregg gives importance to this.  I often asked her where is the motion for the circle, and she replied me:  it doesn't matter.   Osvaldo
