Title: Neue Ergebnisse in der Erforschung der Graphemik und Graphetik des Klassischen Maya
Online publication date: 22-May-2020
Language: german
Abstract: The hitherto only partially deciphered Maya hieroglyphic writing system is one of the most eminent examples of the development of writing in the world. The present article discusses a new description scheme for graphemes in Maya writing. Previous sign catalogues applied a more or less random approach to make an inventory of allographs. Our scheme works on the basis of sign-morphological criteria and revises the coding scheme established by Eric Thompson. This new grapheme classification is moreover designed to match the requirements of corpus linguistics and machine readability.
