Astonishing commentary on my Exhaustive Linear A lexicon, comparing my achievements to those of Albert Einstein! In the past week since I first uploaded my Exhaustive Linear A Lexicon, it has received 410 hits, i.e. downloads, as of 5:00 pm., Monday 7 August 2017. This amounts to almost 60 downloads a day. To download it, click below. You will then be taken to the next page, where you simply click the green DOWNLOAD button. The lexicon has catapulted me from the top 5% to the top 0.1% of academia.edu users. Comments and commendations have been pouring in. Unquestionably, the most astonishing is this one: Other comments include: wonderful topic... Inspired by your new perspective on one of the most studied cultures in the world. Yes when you see their artifacts and the technology needed to create such items is amazing... Thanks for the reply and keep up the great work
Commentary by one of my visitors at academia.edu on the enormous potential impact of my Linear A Lexicon of 1031 words, even from the Preview online:
Et je cite Alexandre Solcà de l’Université de Genève
Oui, votre lexique, j’en suis convaincu, est un travail exceptionnel et sera une source importante de comparaisons pour établir le contenu des mots utilisés.
And I quote Alexandre Solcà of the Université de Genève:
Yes, I am convinced that your lexicon is an exceptional study and that it will be a major source of research founded on comparisons (with Linear B) to establish the context of (Linear A) words in use.
Vocabulary and Supersyllabograms in Minoan Linear A classified by tablets (Click on the logo to visit his site): NOTE: Decipherment of many of these words in Minoan Linear A can be cross-correlated with relative ease with Mycenaean Linear B tablets with supersyllabograms on them, since the latter may give hints relative to the potential meanings of the words in question. Relatively intact Minoan Linear A tablets with vocabulary potentially suited for decipherment. Grains (wheat & barley): ARKH 3 ? ... kane + grain ... kinu + grain ... yapi + grain ... pipu3 = pipai + grain (all left truncated)? ARKH 5 adaro + grain HT 21 pitakase + TE = grain HT 44 (cf. HT 88 (human) + HT 131) iqa*118* HT 91 ika HT 92 (Cf. HT 133) adu HT 93 pa3nina = painina + grain + PA3 + RE + SE ase + grain + PA pa3nina = painina HT 101 zu*22*di + grain + QE sara2 = sarai +grain (See also HT 105 HT 114 HT 121 & HT 125) Total = 5 - I will attempt a preliminary decipherment soon. HT 102 sara2 = sarai + grain HT 114 sara2 = sarai+ grain HT 115 *47*nuraya + grain HT 116 kupaya pura2 = purai + grain + DI – I will attempt this one soon. pura2 = purai + grain + KI – I will attempt this one soon. pi*34*te sikine qanuma HT 121 sara2 = sarai HT 125 sara2 = sarai reta2 = retai + grain + PA – I will attempt this one soon (See also sara2 = sarai) HT 129 kireta2 = kiretai + grain tuqirina + grain HT 131 iqa*118 + grain (Cf.

HT 123-124 * kitai + (owed) = kiro (total)– I will attempt these 3 soon. saru + (owed) = kiro (total) datu + (owed) = kiro (total) HT 140 yedi + KI Sheep: HT 132 qareto = field (lease field -or- plot of land)? + ideogram for sheep. This does not mean sheep! Vessels: HT 93 – I will attempt this one soon. darida Wine: ARKH 2 kura = wine? or something related to wine. Cf. Linear B Tablet Pylos Py TA Un 718 L (to be posted next).
