About Sumerian Proverb of the Day

Sumerian Proverb of the Day / Sumerian Cuneiform Writing


"Sumerian Proverb of the Day"

Based on the ETCSL collection: Black, J.A., Cunningham, G., Ebeling, J., Flückiger-Hawker, E., Robson, E., Taylor, J., and Zólyomi, G., The Electronic Text Corpus of Sumerian Literature ( http://etcsl.orinst.ox.ac.uk/ ), Oxford 1998-2006.

"Sumerian Cuneiform writing"

Based on unicode "UR-III" fonts -- with direct link to ePSD.

For a "transliteration" line it produces the (UR-III) cuneiform version with links to ePSD

For transliteration you can use
- 'j' for 'ĝ' and 'c' for 'š',
- '/' or '?' before and after determinatives (e.g., /d/en-lil2 or unug/ki/),
- '-' or ',' for word parts,
- '.' for compound cuneiform,
- '(' and ')' to specify used cuneiform,

e.g., /d/ba-u2 nin(SAL.KUG) iri-kug-ga
or ?d?ba,u2 nin(SAL.KUG) iri,kug,ga

IT WORKS ONLY ON STRONG DEVICES (large memory and fast cpu), BECAUSE CUNEIFORM FONTS ARE EXTREMELY HUGE.

When i search a word and the symbol appears to show how it is written in cuniform....English translation of the Sumerian word would be nice so I know how to pronounce it

U70%
by U####:

The text is so small, I cannot make it out. I've found no way of enlarging it. If I could enlarge it from about 4pt to even 8 pt...

The pics of the original summain text doesnt show up its little blocks instead

T70%
by T####:

"Only on strong devices" is somewhat dated - my old Xperia Ion has no problems running it. What I miss is a "share" button - to tweet (etc.) the results, I have to make s screenshot (awkward on most devices), open the image in a file browser and share from there.

L70%
by L####:

All signs are glossed and linked to the epsd and translations are given from the etcsl. You couldn't ask for much more!

S70%
by S####:

This is quite excellent, does everything it says; I can't start my day without it! They do say that those who can't read Sumerian are uneducated - this app helps along the way.
