The next word you will want to keep firmly in mind, as it is a KEY word in both Linear A & Linear B:

KORETE koreitei governor

With all the syllabograms we now have, we can even form phrases & sentences!

ARIOA AREPA better or perfect ointment

EKOSI KAKO they have some copper


and 2 more syllabograms for today…


Given the syllabograms and vowels we have learned so far, we can add 3 more words.

These are:

REA nose

KARO pork

PAKANA sword

Our next two syllabograms are RE & NA


Linear B vowel “i” and character SI

OTE ote when

KAMA field
