Brand new Sumerians called they ki-en-gir15 (virtually, ‘place of one’s humane lords’). It could possibly become an effective dialectal pronunciation of your own Sumerian phrase kiengir. It chance is suggested from the Emesal dialect setting ‘dimmer’ having the expression ‘dingir’.

I composed in order to Dr. Postgate, >>Do you write in your own book Early Mesopotamia: Neighborhood and you can Discount in the >> Beginning of history you to ki-en-gi mode ‘land of the Sumerian tongue’?

It seems you’ll. As it happens that we now have not many instances of ki-en-gi-ra2 which can be translated because a no cost-standing genitival syntagm – We simply select one or two on Profit away from Utu-Hengal, ETCSL transliteration : c.2.step one.6.

I’d merely never ever read they otherwise regarded they up until this week

For people who take a look at my personal had written lexicon’s recommended reinterpretation away from saj-ji6[gig2]-ga since having originally suggested ‘native persons’, unlike their exact concept of ‘the black-headed’, you will notice that I am open to consonantal intake slowly modifying terminology that have been then reinterpreted regarding common information and you will composing.

That, Dr. Postgate replied, >Well in fact I do believe also one another men and women days are taken because locatives: >due to the fact ideal of the bi2- prefix in line 2, and by the ETCSL translation >(“when you look at the Sumer”) in-line 21. > >Perform you should cite me personally, I am nevertheless happy with they.

The etymology of your Akkadian label is not familiar

>Mul-sag-me-gar = Jupiter droop-myself = mesu II = ‘cult, rites’ and you will gar = ‘to establish’, but it is always composed Sag-ME-GAR to show that people are not familiar with the newest pronunciation, since it has also been good logogram to have Neberu, hence phone calls to mind Nippur, the fresh new Sumerian’s cult cardio.

>Of these ‘gu-ud’ manner of course ‘gu4-ud’ (=bull out-of sunshine) and you may ‘sag-us’ are >needless to say ‘sag-us2’ (=regular superstar), ‘mul’ is actually ‘star’ however, I don’t know concerning people. >Are you willing to feel therefore type regarding mention a correct rendering of your own five terminology?

udu-idim was ‘wild sheep’. I’ve zero textual gloss otherwise real research your signs have been read through this way, in lieu of udu-bad, and therefore, definition ‘dead sheep’, do consider brand new globes while the omens, however, Benno Landsberger with his detailed experience in Sumerian deduced one to this is actually the very likely studying.

Regarding almost every other definitions regarding gu4-ud I might infer that the Sumerians by themselves know globally Mercury, and i could have viewed nin-si4-an-na inside the a good Sumerian textual context, nevertheless other labels simply occur in later contexts, so i do not know how very early they certainly were developed and you may used.
