Syllabic Grid of Ancient Scripts: DU Luvian Update to the Minoan Aegean Sign Concordance MinAegCon by Andis Kaulins

Syllabic Grid of Ancient Scripts: DU Luvian Update to the Minoan Aegean Sign Concordance MinAegCon by Andis Kaulins

(continued from DI Luvian Update) -- there is no update at this time for the DO syllable

This posting updates the series started here by adding Luvian (also spelled Luwian, formerly Hieroglyphic Hittite) to the syllabic grid for the syllable DU originally published at 46 - The Syllable DU : 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.

If I have found no comparable Luvian syllable in mainstream sources, there is no update posting for that syllable. This applies particularly to syllables with the vowel "O", which predecessor Sumerian did not have (apparently also not in Luvian). Syllables with the vowel "E" are alleged by Luvian scholars not to have been used for Luvian, though I think otherwise. My research indicates that also Luvian had "consonant plus vowel E" (or similar sound) syllables and I include them if I have been able to identify them (provisionally, of course, subject to ultimate confirmation).

Each syllable will be presented in its own posting.

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

The original text follows -- the links there are clickable -- but embedded fonts or images may be missing because Blogger does not pick them all up from Microsoft Word, so use the scanned image for those.




The Syllable DU plus Luvian in the Minoan Aegean Sign Concordance (by Andis Kaulins)

DU
"slavery, bondage"
The tied arms of the
prisoner viz. captive on
the Phaistos Disc are
abstracted in Linear B.
and in the Cypriot
syllabary, seemingly to
represent the term

Various terms in the
different languages
focus on the act of
“tieing” the captive or
submission, or may
denote the latter status
of a prisoner,e.g.  as a
slave.  That is why the
terms may differ greatly
in the dictionaries and
lexicons.
Cypriot
syllabary


TU

Note:
The Cypriot
sign for TO is
not slanted
and has no
double slashes
right, and thus
is surely not to
be compared
in origin with
this sign.
Linear B



(51)
DU



For the concept of “tied”, various depictions are used, not all on humans as prisoners or captives.
Phaistos Disk

DU
as a tied man
_________

Egyptian
No comparable Axe sign
__________


Tied Warriors of Peleset
_________

Sumerian
The Sumerian has the
hand sign and then the
rib-like sign DU8 in
combination for
“captive”, are those rib-
like elements “ties”?
See last column.
No Elamite
sign yet

Egyptian
Wikipedia:
Keftiu...”

TU
tied object
Sumerian
