Books published in obscure languages (Especially interested in Sumerian )
I was wandering if anyone knew if there are any books published in Sumerian or Akkadian cuneiform and if so where can I get them ( especially interested in getting the epic of Gilgamesh) On a side note if you know of any books published in strange or unusual languages or scripts I would be very interested
You can find texts (not necessarily books) in cuneiform in these links:
(4) The publications of The Oriental Institute (University of Chicago) contain illustrations of cuneiform and and other ancient texts.
These are more for learning languages that use cuneiform, but there may be some books with reading selections. Sometimes the site is slow to load.
The U. of Texas at Austin has online "lessons" for various Indo-European languages, including Hittite, and if you'll look on the left of the page, there's also Old Persian. What's nice about the introductory courses offered on this site is that they base what they are teaching on an original text in the language being taught.
Memrise has some "courses", that might be a good supplement to other material.
This information may be of interest.
Do a search on
cuneiform on Duolingo forums, and you'll find some discussion.
Good luck! If you find anything interesting, please mention what it is.
