Open Culture just posted the links to an Akkadian/Assyrian Dictionary. Guess they consider it to be the oldest written language. Anyways, it might be of interest. The PDF downloads are free, as far as I can tell. Interesting how Open Culture calls it Akkadian and the U of Chicago calls it Assyrian. I'm not a linguist so I don't get the difference but most of you will. There's also a link to a clip of the Epic of Gilgamesh in Akkadian/Assyrian read by Dr, Martin Worthington at Cambridge. Here are the links:
