Read e-book online A Linguistic History of Ancient Cyprus (Cambridge Classical PDF

By Philippa M. Steele

This pioneering quantity techniques the languages and scripts of old Cyprus from an interdisciplinary viewpoint, with a basically linguistic and epigraphic technique supplemented by means of a attention in their historic and cultural context. the point of interest is on furthering our wisdom of the non-Greek languages/scripts, in addition to appreciating their position with regards to the far better understood Greek language at the island. Following on from fresh advances in Cypro-Minoan reviews, those tough, regularly overdue Bronze Age inscriptions are reassessed from first ideas. an analogous method is taken for non-Greek languages written within the Cypriot Syllabic script through the first millennium BC, mainly the only frequently known as Eteocypriot. the ultimate part is then devoted to the Phoenician language, which was once in use on Cyprus for a few hundreds of thousands of years. the result's a cautious reappraisal of those languages/scripts after greater than a century of occasionally arguable scholarship.
