18 - The Syllable RI : Origins of Writing in Western Civilization and the Kaulins Minoan Aegean Sign Concordance (MinAegCon™): A Syllabic Grid of Mycenaean Greek Linear B Script, the Cypriot Syllabary, the Phaistos Disk, two Old Elamite Scripts, the Inscription on the Axe of Arkalochori, and Comparable Signs from Sumerian Pictographs and Egyptian Hieroglyphs

This is the 18th posting in this series (which started here), and presents the Syllable RI in the Syllabic Grid. Each syllable is presented in its own posting.

There is first a scan of a "syllabic" table excerpt from the original Microsoft Word manuscript -- the links there are not clickable because it is one image.

That image is followed by the original text -- the links there are clickable -- but you can not see the Aegean Fonts or images embedded in Microsoft Word, as these do not resolve in Blogger, so you will see "a ? ? filler".


The Syllable RI in the Minoan Aegean Sign Concordance (by Andis Kaulins)

AEIOU vowel system yet

were dipthongs, so that
a strict AEIOU system
here is a bit misleading)

Most of the signs are a
υτόνrhyton”,a
container for fluids,
while the Phaistos Disk
has a sign I mistook 30
years ago for a plant
leaf but which is actually
a plant root, a rhizome,
ίζωμα viz. the
simpler Greek ιζόω
“to plant, strike root”.
Cypriot syllabary:
𐠦
RO
(Must RI and
RO values, not
the signs as
placed, be
exchanged in
the Cypriotic?)

Mistaken as a

No similar sign on Axe


For Linear B, the current
"The r-series includes ...
the /r/ and /l/
phonemes: ti-ri-po for
tripos (τρίπος) & tu-ri-so
for Tuliso (Τυλισός)."
That view is clearly
incorrect. Both /R/ and
/L/ phonemes existed in
Linear B.
No Elamite sign yet.
