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

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

(continued from LI Luvian Update)

This posting updates the series started here by adding Luvian (also spelled Luwian, formerly Hieroglyphic Hittite) to the syllabic grid for the syllable LO originally published at 50 - The Syllable LO : 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 LO plus Luvian in the Minoan Aegean Sign Concordance (by Andis Kaulins)


LO
"pour liquid, fluid,
libation"
λεος “smooth, even”
“smooth, polish, grind”
(i.e. using applied,
running or poured
water, liquid or fluid for
this purpose)

Sumerian
Note: The Sumerian
libation sign is virtually
identical to the dropping
drops Axe sign, while
Old Kingdom Pharaonic
Egyptian hieroglyhs for
libation are similar,
retaining the “drops”
concept, suggesting the
original sign concept
may have shown
raindrops falling from
the firmament above.
Cypriot
syllabary



LO
__________
Axe of
Arkalochori
Dartmouth

Archaeology of the
Aegean, , Lesson 25:
The Linear B Tablets
and Mycenaean
Social, Political, and
Economic
Organization,
“QA-SI-RE-U
[quasileus =
basileus]:
[cont. right]
Linear B
Read in error
as RO

(02)

LO
__________
The connection
of Linear B QA-
SI-RE-U with
Homeric basileus
meaning "king" is
undeniable, but it
is equally clear
that the
Mycenaean
quasileus was
nothing more
than some kind
of chief or leader
of a small group,
in one case a
group of
bronzesmiths.”
Phaistos Disk
no similar sign
_______
Sumerian had no "O"
and the
Phaistos Disc
consonants
essentially
have only 4
vowels viz.
vowel-
sounds used
mostly in the
consonant
and vowel
combination.
_______
Egyptian
To UAHIT
“libation”
compare
Indo-
European
e.g. Latvian
LĪT “to pour„
,,to rain“
Axe of Arkalochori

or
LO
My decipherment of the
Axe of Arkalochori reads
overseer of smiths
super (hyper-) smooth
(for the) ruler
Simple-syllabically that is
PA-SE-LA Overseer
LO-THI-NE
smoothened
PA-RU-LO
super-smooth
PA-LA-KU axe
(A)RO-KU-TE for ruler
No Elamite
sign yet

UAH was
