66 - Vowels and W-Based Syllables : 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 66th and last posting in this series (which started here), and presents the Vowels and W-Based Syllables in the Syllabic Grid, i.e. the vowels (A, E, I, O, and U), including the W-based syllables (WA, WE, WI, WU - no WO of course in Sumerian) , which in Sumerian are all covered by the "A" vowel sign A3, Jaritz sign #688.

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.

This vowel placement
merely highlights some
observations and is not
and can not be like the
convincing analysis of
the previous syllables,
for the Phaistos Disk has
no vowel signs at all, so
that full-fledged vowels
must have developed
later at other locations.
