Shlama,


i just found this interesting creation and had to share it here:

<!-- m --><a class="postlink" href="http://www.originalhebrew.com/resources/Aramaic%20Writings.pdf">http://www.originalhebrew.com/resources ... itings.pdf</a><!-- m -->

note: it is a large file

the website says it is the Eastern Peshitta, but i didn't look far enough into it to check this claim yet. anyhow, the script is in what is called "Old Negev" / "First Tongue," which predates PaleoHebrew, and which is the only *real* Hebrew alphabet out there -- the rest are Aramaic versions, of course. also, it has been written LEFT-to-RIGHT, unfortunately, so you have to read it backwards, but from what little i read in Matai, it is not that difficult. if you haven't heard of the Old Negev Hebrew script, check it out:

And now you see why this script, along with Akkadian (also written from left-to-write) were eventually abandoned in favor of the simpler and cleaner Aramaic based scripts. =)

Shlama akhi,


but it's so picturesque! <!-- s:biggrin: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/biggrin.gif" alt=":biggrin:" title="Big Grin" /><!-- s:biggrin: --> i've been studying this script since 2004, as the very letters appear to tell stories in some words. interesting stuff!

and to be clear, the Old Negev script was originally written right-to-left, but the composer of the pdf file is responsible for the opposite, Western-mindset direction!
