Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Gutian language was spoken by the Gutians or Guteans, an ancient people who lived in the territory between the Zagros and the Tigris, present-day Iranian and Iraqi Kurdistan, around 2100 BCE, and who briefly ruled over Sumer. Nothing is known about the language except its existence and a list of Gutian ruler names in the Sumerian king list. The existence is attested by a list of languages spoken in the region, found in a clay tablet from the Middle Babylonian period presumably originating from the city of Imar: p.13, which also lists Akkadian, Amorite, Sutean, "Subarean," and Elamite. There is also record of "an interpreter for the Gutean language" at Adab.show more
