Marianne,

Try this: start saying "Nib" over and over again as fast as you can. I guarantee it'll soon turn into "Pip".

Hahaha. True. There goes every linguistic theory out the window. But its just a wordgame,, perhaps a deliberate one.

Can you hear the difference or should I spell it? Or can you lipread? Pip, Nib, Dip, Gip. Ah yes, Cafetaria is the name I was looking for.

Regards,
Ian

                  Dear Marc I would still want to see the Akkadian text of EA 9. NIP and NIB are not written exactly the same way in Akkadian cuneiform. That is not true. Miller is probably making small errors here.... more

                    Dear Tory, I must add that the index of Bezold & Budge, p. 154, gives : Ni-ip-ḫu-ur-ri-ri-ya for the royal name on tablet Bezold & Budge n░ 2, 1 (EA 9, 1). Regards

                  Dear Marc Well it cannot be both NIB and NIP in EA 9, so I would very much like to know who is telling the truth. I would know who if I had access to the cuneiform text. Maybe someone does and can... more
