"Winter's Child" in Akkadian.

Big fan of the Ancient Near East, studying Akkadian on my own, and hoping to move up to Sumerian one day.

I can be a pretty silly guy and view humor as a good learning device. A lot of the things I write in Akkadian for practice will be goofy, if not flat out bizarre. So be prepared!

 

The basic Akkadian syllabary… if only it was this simple.
