Happy New Year 2017 in Linear B, Greek, English & French!
Merry Christmas in Modern Greek Linear B & English! (Click to ENLARGE):
For Merry Christmas, Linear B has to “fill in” KIRI since all syllabograms end in a vowel, and so no two consonants can follow one another, and in most Linear B words, if an S were to precede a TO (which it cannot!), the S is dropped. Also, Linear B has no L+vowel so it has to use R + vowel. Still, it clearly says the same thing as modern Greek.
What is really amazing is that Happy New Year is almost identical in Linear B & modern Greek, even after 3,300 years!
