90 years of work on dictionary done= All roads lead to Sumer and Akkad

The University of Chicago institute completed a 90 year old project of assembling what it might well be the most important dictionary in the world. Akkadian, Babylonian, Assyrian are all languages that inherited the knowledge of Sumer. PerhapsAkkadian being the closest translations to the ones of Sumer. This is important to linguists focusing on evolutionary linguistics because Mesopotamia, Iraq, is said to be the origin of many ancient languages. It is not that I would pay the price tag of $1,400. but I will get really disappointed in Houston if no local library acquires this modern Rosetta stone. Shame on the locals if they don’t…. that’d be one more reason to get ^$#^@5 away from here. I hope I won’t have to say, ‘Houston, we have a problem.’
