First of all, I did a quick cut-and-paste from the front page of my
PostScript document.  It's here:

Each words has one radical.  The one in 'tyl' is 'good' and the one in
'sjok' is 'mouth'.

The helping dots are in the middle of the squares that you correctly describe (the center is where the diagonal vowel lines cross) and the palatal dot is *on* line 18. That's a bit odd, heh? But it makes the characters nicer, because they are not so, hmm, regular. (Yes, they are super regular indeed still. :-) ) To be complete, there is a pitch tone dot, too, indicating things on phrase level: a comma, namely. That one goes onto line 22. **Henrik
