Madeleine, FYI: The oldest attested manuscript of SKL dates to the Ur III period (ca. 2100-2000BC), and begins at line 41 of the Old Babylonian composite text in etcsl: 1. nam-lugal an-ta ed3-da-ba 2. kiš.ki lugal-am3 3. kiš.ki-a giš-ur3-e 4. mu 600x3+60x6 i3-na 1.

Madeleine, A note about the use of capital letters in transliteration. In Assyriology capitals are used in two ways: 1) in Sumerian contexts to indicate that the pronunciation of a sign or compound of signs is not known, 2) in Akkadian contexts, a) to indicate an unknown pronunciation (as in Sumerian contexts), and b) the use of a Sumerian sign as a logogram (word sign) for an Akkadian wor

Madeleine, I don't know if you are aware, but there is a new version of epsd, namely, epsd2 (http://oracc.museum.upenn.edu/epsd2/). The link "About" will direct you to to a page which contains further links to the various dictionaries. I have been playing with it for about a week; it will take a little investigation to determine how things work. It is much more thorough than the prev

Madeleine, The words Anuna and Anunnaki are connected in the following ways: 1. Sumerian Anuna, as you have pointed out, consists of 3 signs: a+nun+na. These are the words /a/ 'water' and /nun/ 'prince', plus the genitive postposition /ak/, written -na. Literally the meaning is 'water-prince-of', or more figuratively, 'seed/offspring of the prince'. The word was pronounced /anunak/, but owi

In 2010 a poster on another message board, with background in the Egyptian language, explained to Cladking in 2 meticulous posts that his understanding of I3.t-wt.t was completely erroneous. Cladking's lack of background knowledge in ancient Egyptian, inability to read hieroglyphs and intellectual failures to understand the argument, was amply shown. That 7 1/2 years later he continues to repeat

Some free association, inspired from a number of Cladking's posts across the boards: "Solving the PT in a near vacuum of other writing and realizing that "neter" meant "nature" spelled sideways in plain English, it was the illogical death obsessed gobbledty gooks dragging stinky footed bumpkins up tombs while walking in corpse drippings, armed with nothing but thumbs a

Hanslune asked Cladking (Oct. 15, 2017 at 07:13, repeated Oct. 16, 2017 at 05:06, 15:11 & 21:33) to provide linguistic evidence for his assertion that all written languages attested roughly at the same time as the PT were merely "dialects" of a single Ancient Language. As of the time of this post he has failed to do so, but instead has simply stated his often repeated canard about h
