Usage notesEdit

  • 𒍢 (ze₂ /ze/) becomes 𒍝 (za) when followed by a case marker that contains the vowel /a/, i.e. genitive /ak/, dative /ra/, or comitative case /da/.
  • The final vowel /e/ becomes /ē/ before the enclitic copula, and it is often indicated by the plene spelling, e.g.:
    𒍢𒂊𒈨 𒉺𒁽𒀀𒉌 𒃶𒈨ze₂-e-me maškim-a-ne₂ ḫe₂-me /zēmen maškimane ḫēmen/ ― You yourself should be his commissioner.
