48 - The Syllable LE : 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 48th posting in this series (which started here), and presents the Syllable LE 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 LE in the Minoan Aegean Sign Concordance (by Andis Kaulins)
LE
λαία "olive".

Linear B sign B27 is read
in error as RE. Scholars
suggest a two-way use
of RE to also represent
LE, e.g. alleging that the
Greeks on Crete wrote
re-u-ka instead of le-u
ka for WHITE, or re-wo
instead of le-wo for
LION or re-po-to instead
of le-pot-to (lepto) for
thin.
That analysis does
not hold water. The
syllable RE is actually LE.
