A much needed book, now made available. 6 juin 2013
Par XxD0BxX - Publié sur
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
As an undergraduate student I have personally begun to study Mayan hieroglyphic writing in complete isolation and working from a variety of sources that ranged from databases containing peer reviewed academic articles, to hard to find books. Alas, all of the material I went through in times now gone by, has been compiled into an incredibly beneficial package. This is to say that although the material I found on my own was quite satisfyingly engaging, I realized how much time was needed to search for these materials. This process may have once deterred people whose interest was piqued but found this obstacle too bothersome to pursue further.
However, this book gathers up all of the basic concepts and organizes each chapter in a way that makes sense and that helps to make the process less overwhelming. All in all, if you're a student like myself and have been told that this line of study is meant for a graduate student but could care less, buy this book. You shall not regret it.

Excellent book to learn to read Maya hieroglyphs 20 avril 2014
Par James G Atkinson - Publié sur
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
This book on the Maya hieroglyphs is a textbook to teach students how to read the glyphs. It is an excellent resource for self-study, including exercises to ensure that you have understood what is being taught. The older study guide, Michael Coe and Mark van Stone’s “Reading the Maya Glyphs”, remains an excellent resource, but is now a little out-of-date, given the major advances that have been made since it was published.

Johnson mentions the major academic controversies in the ancient Maya language, and seems to present an unbiased discussion of the differing viewpoints. The book is comprehensive, including sections on reading order of glyph blocks and inscriptions, calendar calculations, grammar, as well as a syllabary, a dictionary and a Maya to English lexicon.

This book can be recommended as an excellent resource for anyone wanting to learn to read hieroglyphic inscriptions.

Wonderful book! Long overdue and one of a kind 19 janvier 2015
Par Shon R. Edwards - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
Very long overdue work. In fact, I believe it's the first of its kind. It's laid out like a language text. I'm a linguist and have used hundreds of language texts and this one is looks to be quite a good one, in spite of the fact that you "get your feet wet" extremely quickly. By exercise 1.6, you are already matching up the approximately 175 logograms, their bi-syllabic "alphabet" from a table to examples in the exercise. (They are not necessarily identical to what's in the table either; additionally, each town or even scribe had his own style.) There are technically only 100 slots for the logograms (20 consonants x 5 vowels), but in one case, the ['u] logogram manifests itself 11 different ways, depending on context from a number of factors. A glyph may consist of one or many parts (the most "meaning"-full one is indeed full, consisting of 13 parts, or individual words, prefixes, suffixes, superfixes, or other affixes, etc.). Each part of the glyph is read in a strict order (yes, there are also exceptions). pp. 26 and 31 show pictorially in which order parts of a glyph are read, and the 8 steps to reading a glyph and in which order, respectively. There is a diagrammed representation in the form of a square divided into 12 boxes of various sizes and shapes. It shows in which order you read the pieces of the glyph. In this case, you divide the main square into four pieces, and beginning with the upper left hand corner and you treat each quarter of the main square sort of as its own individual logogram, then go to the upper right hand corner set of glyphs, lower left, and lower right. The set of steps is no less challenging, e.g., 1. if x, go to step 2, otherwise step 6; if x, go back to 3, otherwise go to step 8, etc. until the entire glyph is read. Well, I just wanted to give a small idea of what this is like in the beginning of the book. There is also a rather lengthy chapter on numbers and dates, a chapter on grammar, incorporating the glyphs, etc. One thing I've long been plagued with is the difference between the transcription and transliteration systems. The book explains also about this. It makes Japanese look like a piece of cake, but I'm the type that loves challenges. I am very grateful for this work; I've been waiting a long time for it. As a side note, I'm also excited for another long overdue work: Martha J. Macri's The New Catalog of Maya Hieroglyphs: The Classic Period Inscriptions and The New Catalog of Maya Hieroglyphs, Volume Two: Codical Texts. Only just over a year old, it gives an exhaustive inventory of the Maya glyphs known up to that point. Check Amazon for these two works. Well, I've been going on enough. Just very happy about the possibility of finally learning the language I've been limping through on and off for over 20 years.
Buy it, you'll like it :) 29 novembre 2013
