Altbabylonische Zeichenliste der sumerisch-literarischen Texte


Mittermayer, Catherine (2006). Altbabylonische Zeichenliste der sumerisch-literarischen Texte. Fribourg, Switzerland / Göttingen, Germany: Academic Press / Vandenhoeck & Ruprecht.

Abstract

The Altbabylonische Zeichenliste presents a collection of 480 cuneiform signs used in the Sumerian literary texts of the Old Babylonian period. The inventory of sign forms exclusively refers to texts from Nippur and Ur as well as to the relevant tables kept in the collections of the University Museum (Philadelphia), the British Museum (London) and the Hilprecht-Sammlung (Jena). Most of the signs listed have been collated.
The sign list is classified according to Old Babylonian main forms. Each entry consists of a main form and up to 16 variants supposed to cover the spectrum of a sign as far as possible. All forms are listed with their quotations differentiated according to the origin of the tablet.
In addition to the sign forms the list also provided the corresponding values and Diri. Some of the values are explained in detail in a commentary at the end of the sign list.
The book concludes with four indices referencing the main forms, the ambiguous forms, the values and the sign names (with their concordances to other sign lists).
