Abstract

A review of H. Marquardt's book on the function and use of logograms in Hittite cuneiform, which isolates two main motivations for logogram-use: tachygraphy and the avoidance of varying syllabic writings. Broad agreement is found with these results. A slightly different statistical model for interpretation of results relating to the chronological aspects of logogram-use in Hittite texts is suggested.
