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

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

(continued from MU 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 NA originally published at 32 - The Syllable NA : 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 NA plus Luvian in the Minoan Aegean Sign Concordance (by Andis Kaulins)

These dwellings or  
"huts" are found
inscribed at Naquane

The Egyptian term NWT
and Greek ναιετάω
“dwell, inhabit” may
find explanation in Indo-
European e.g. Latvian
neiet, i.e. NE-IET
“not go”, i.e. the idea of
home as a place to stay
as opposed to being on
the road viz. in the act
of “going”. “Dwelling” is
“not going”.
