    Ha! I was going to post this as well. Cuneiform works much better for the Sumerian language. But Akkadian is better understood. A couple of other sources I was going to suggest are Erica Reiner's essay "How We Read Cuneiform" and Labat's Manuel d'Epigraphie akkadiannee.I still think Labat is the easiest place to look up signs and most values. The fact that this writing system was employed in a cultural context characterized by Sumero-Akkadian bilingualism and that the cuneiform developped from pictography to a phonetical system adapted to write an agglutinative and ergative language with unchangeable morphemes as Sumerian was determined the written form of Akkadian.

    Most of his investigations were published in the Transactions of the Royal Irish Academy, In he published a Report to the Trustees of the British Museum respecting certain Cylinders and Terra-cotta Tablets, with Cuneiform Inscriptions; and in a Letter on the Polyphony of the Assyrio-Babylonian Cuneiform Writing. Mr. part of the book. Even though the two editions of the Old Akkadian Writing and Grammar contain practically the same number of pages, the second edition is two-thirds larger in terms of contents than the first edition. This was accomplished by having the manuscript of the second edition typed on .

    The Assyrian/Babylonian Cuneiform: Pictographs (symbols that visually look like physical objects, also known as hieroglyphs) evolved over time from around B.C. into Babylonian-Assyrian Cuneiform (wedge shaped writing) around B.C. Note: The evolution of the pictograph went from the Ancient Sumerians (who developed the first Cuneiform language based on the pictographs) -> Babylonians. Other articles where Old Babylonian cuneiform is discussed: cuneiform: Spread and development of cuneiform: of Hammurabi is written in Old Babylonian cuneiform, which developed throughout the shifting and less brilliant later eras of Babylonian history into Middle and New Babylonian types. Farther north in Mesopotamia the beginnings of Assur were humbler.

Cuneiform or Sumero-Akkadian cuneiform, one of the earliest systems of writing, was invented by the Sumerians. It is distinguished by its wedge-shaped marks on clay tablets, made by means of a blunt reed for a ges: Akkadian, Eblaite, Elamite, Hattic, Hittite.

Cuneiform scholars worldwide have the massive task of translation. According to one estimate, “only about 1/10 of the extant cuneiform texts have been read even once in modern times.” The discovery of bilingual and trilingual texts in cuneiform writing was the key to deciphering cuneiform.

The original Sumerian script was adapted for the writing of the Akkadian, Eblaite, Elamite, Hittite, Luwian, Hattic, Hurrian, and Urartian languages, and it inspired the Ugaritic and Old Persian alphabets.

Cuneiform writing was gradually replaced by the Phoenician alphabet during the Neo-Assyrian Empire, and by the 2nd century AD. On the polyphony of the Assyrio-Babylonian cuneiform writing a letter to Professor Renouf / (Dublin: John F.
