31 - The Syllable MU : 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 31st posting in this series (which started here), and presents the Syllable MU 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. After I get all the syllables online, I will clean up the individual pages by making images of the various signs and uploading them to eliminate the current text resolution deficiencies, but it is a massive amount of tedious extra graphics work, so I am not doing it right now, as it is not essential for online purposes. One can see the full grid for the syllable on the scanned image.

 

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

MU (should be viewed
together with MO)
Since Sumerian had no
“O” vowel, overlap can
occur between O and U
syllabic elements in
terms of concepts,
especially here at the M-
based syllables. The
concepts of “ox(back)”
“back” and “middle”
may have meshed in the
Phaistos Disk sign for
MO, leading to the back
middle of an ox being
depicted there, but an
ox head being depicted
in Linear B for MU.
Cypriot syllabary
𐠘
MU



For Sumerian
MURGU
“back”
see also Indo-
European e.g.
Latvian mugura “back”
Linear B
𐀘 (23) MU
 “ox head”


Egyptian
M(J)R
ox tongue
Gardiner #F20
Latvian mēle
“tongue”
Phaistos Disk
no similar sign.
_______

If more texts
of the type
on the
Phaistos Disk
turned up,
then MU
here would
surely be about the same as
the Elamite
sign.

No comparable Axe sign

__________

It would appear from my
decipherments that the
Old Elamite symbol to
the right was used in Old
Elamite script to show
the deceased both
pictographically and
syllabically.
Elamite

MU
“back, on
one’s back,
laid to rest, the
deceased”

Sumerian

MUR7
MURGU
“back”

Sumerian
AM
AMA
means “wild ox, bull”
