Download E-books Workbook of Cuneiform Signs (Aids and Research Tools in Ancient Near Eastern Studies) PDF

By Daniel C. Snell

Important publication to help one making plans on studying Akkadian/cuneiform grammar--this is a workbook for memorizing the syllabary

blog review:

Daniel Snell's Workbook of Cuneiform indicators has confirmed to be super useful in my introductory stories within the Akkadian language. frequently, works masking matters comparable to cuneiform writing and popularity turn out to be extra in accordance with a reference paintings than a self sufficient student's consultant. although, this relatively low-cost instructional for writing and memorizing nearly a hundred and ten cuneiform indicators has confirmed to be not just straightforward, yet hugely effective.

I at the beginning accomplished the booklet over the process 3 months a couple of yr in the past. whilst i started learning the Epic of Gilgamesh in Simo Parpola's paintings, i discovered that I had retained approx. 25% of the data within the workbook (even after a yr of being clear of standard touch with the signs). i started facing the workbook a moment time beginning in October, and that i discovered that it purely took 20-30 days to accomplish with a lot of the data with ease coming again to me.

Snell's approach is straightforward, but powerful. He introduces the symptoms so as of similarity (not not like a typical Akkadian signal checklist (so I understand), yet explains and demonstrates precisely find out how to draw each one signal step-by-step. Following preliminary perform of every signal, the coed plays uncomplicated routines from transliteration to cuneiform and vice versa. on the finish of every part, there's an examination that exams the clients wisdom of the indicators realized to that juncture. there's a finished examination on the finish of the e-book as well.

All in all, i've got urged this workbook to seminary scholars that experience both taken a semester of Akkadian or are planning on doing so. it really is a useful device that turns out to set up a scientific strategy for studying a posh writing method. hugely recommended.

A WORKBOOK OF CUNEIFORM indicators. Aids and examine instruments in historical close to jap experiences No.3. via Daniel C. Snell. a hundred and forty pp. Malibu : Undena guides, 1979. ISBN 0-890003-058-8 (pbk.)
The writer tells us that the assumption for this workbook got here from the 'Japanese Kana Workbook' by way of P. G. O'Neill (Palo Alto and Tokyo : Kodansha overseas 1967), a hugely winning workbook for educating the japanese syllabary.
Snell's cuneiform workbook offers the same process programmed guideline that teaches the one hundred ten most often used cuneiform symptoms. It teaches the traditional Neo-Assyrian signal varieties, and a style encouraging energetic use of the indicators is gifted since an lively wisdom of the symptoms will stick with the coed longer.
The symptoms are divided into 8 sections. each one part comprises step by step routines and ends with a quiz reviewing all of the indicators offered. appendices supply an alphabetic checklist of values taught and a listing of the signs.
The 'Workbook' is designed for domestic examine by way of scholars in starting Akkadian sessions and offers a pragmatic and systematic creation to the cuneiform writing method. it may be utilized in conjunction with R. Labat's 'Manuel d'Epigraphie akkadienne' (5th ed., Paris : Geuthner, 1976).
The booklet measures 8.5 through 11.0 inches, is well-printed on powerful paper, and is certain in a strong wrapper. In either layout and method it follows O'Neill's renowned and powerful 'Kana Workbook' very closely.
Snell's 'Workbook' is a wonderful booklet which achieves what it units out to do. because it covers in simple terms a hundred and ten indicators, it won't in fact flip the consumer right into a full-fledged scribe. however it might be of price to newbies in cuneiform, and it may aid dispel a number of the secret which surrounds the gorgeous yet complex cuneiform signs.

By Jim
I believe the former comments.

I'm attempting to research Akkadian with assistance from Huehnergard's very good Grammar of Akkadian, and comprehend little or no of cuneiform.

Snell's workbook doesn't educate you grammar yet is so easy to exploit by itself as an reduction to examining and writing cuneiform, drills you bit by bit (one signal at a time), should be learn in snatches in your spare time, doesn't have pretensions , and, all in all, is well-produced.

The e-book looms better than its expense (though I bought it from a distinct seller).
