[quote author=greagach link=board=2;threadid=607;start=0#6443 date=1064237745]<br />what is the Japanese "Kana" system, and in what way is it related to Mycenaean Linear B? could you tell me more about that, mingshey? <br />[/quote]<br /><br />Kana are two syllabaries that the Japanese use. One, hiragana, is used to write small words such as particles, added after kanji to write conjugations of verbs, and so on. The other, katakana, is used mainly to write foreign loan words. They are based on very simplified kanji. <br /><br />Oh, and I think I can safely say that they have absolutely no genetic relationship to Linear B.
