22 - The Syllable SA : 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 22nd posting in this series (which started here), and presents the Syllable SA 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 some "filler" material. When I get all the syllables online, I will clean up the individual pages by making images of the various signs and uploading them to cover the current text resolution deficiencies, but it is a massive amount of tedious extra work, so I am not doing it right now.


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

SA
In Linear B agricultural
texts: flax (linen) called
flaxen by its color
ξανθός "yellow",
representing perhaps
also “blossoms”
can stand for a full word
or extended syllable as
here e.g. SAN, and thus
Linear B is thus rightly
"a-le-ka-san-da-ra", i.e.
Alexandria, Egypt.

Cypriot syllabary:

𐠨
SA

Linear B

(12)
SA
"yellow flax" or
yellow saffron
Persian
(za'ferân)
Phaistos Disk
The
word-closing
Phaistos Disk
sign
𐇽
is
SS
but do read
the 5th
column.
No comparable Axe sign


of words in Greek
beginning with S are SU,
only 3% SA. By
compasion, in an archaic
Indo-European language
such as Latvian these
stars are reversed, as SA
is 45% and SU 3%,
showing the vowel shift.
The syllable SA is not
as important as SU in
Ancient Greek.
Elamite


SA

A flower.
Sumerian


eSSa2
“a plant”
