1997-98 ANNUAL REPORT

Hans G. Güterbock

Hans G. Güterbock continued to work on the Chicago Hittite Dictionary by means of oral discussion with Richard Beal of the latest drafts of words beginning with shi- and shu-. In his contribution to Mír Curad: Studies in Honor of Calvert Watkins, entitled "Notes on Some Luwian Hieroglyphs," he adduced evidence for the theory that in the empire period some syllabic signs of the so-called Hittite hieroglyphs can be read both with the vowels a and i. His examples are ni/a, ti/a, æa/e, and perhaps even the reading of a logogram as HattuSHa/i. In June 1998, he received the published papers of the XXXIV International Assyriology Congress held in Istanbul, 1987, which contains his article "To Drink a God," in which he argues for the literal understanding of the phrase.
