Nice things, as I said, which means,  I lazily use other person’s explanation instead of doing it myself ^^J

    I would absolutely love to go to school to study this era of languages. The cuneiform, the hieroglyph, I would love to find a school that actually has these as a solid part of a master’s program at least. Ancient Greek/Hebrew/Latin all seem to grow on trees, but going farther back is like pulling teeth.
