Please excuse our mess while Karl cleans up his cave.

He is chiseling out new content and website modifications for you.

 

 

Karl the caveman, content writer of the past:

 

In 3200 BC, when Karl was a school boy sitting on the banks of the Tigris or Euphrates river, writing a letter was quite an undertaking. Using any surface from stone to ivory or even bone, he had to carve pictures with his little chisel to tell his grandparents about his summer vacation. It was a true labor of love, with the emphasis on labor. Compare Karl’s pictograms to your learning how to print in the first grade.

Later, when Karl was grown and working in the big city, writing had developed into a more complex form because in order to take care of business, a company needed a way to keep inventory and communicate with people in far away places. Eventually, so that people from far and wide knew what the heck everyone was saying, written language became standardized. Similar advances in communication were evolving in China and other parts of Asia at the same time.

 

 

Phonetic writing, based on the sounds people make, was developed in Phoenicia using only consonants. Aramaic and Hebrew are Phonetic languages. The Greeks came along and added vowels to the Phoenician system around 800 BC which created a 24 character alphabet. When the Romans were busy taking over the world, they adapted the Greek alphabet for their own use and spread this language throughout the Roman empire.

 

 

Now, Karl’s ancestors were able to put away their chisels and write whatever and wherever they wanted due to the invention of writing materials such as papyrus and leaves.

 

 

Arabic script evolved from a little known language developed in the first century BC. This language came about due to a need for accurate recording of the word of God in the Qur’an in the 7th century AD. Naturally, this form of writing became one of the world’s standard scripts.

 

 

Very early Christian texts were written by poor, freezing monks writing in Latin, except in Ireland, where Celtic monks used the more work-a -day language of  Roman soldiers.

 

 

In Central America, the Mayans had developed their own written language combining both phonetic and hieroglyphic elements, and were the first in the Americas to develop a calendar. Mayan writing concentrated on these two elements:  calculating their calendar and astronomy, and listing their dynasties and battles won against their enemies.

 

 

Most recently, the Cherokee Indians analyzed their oral language and concluded that it included eighty-six separate syllables which, in turn became symbols which were used to turn Cherokee into a written language.

 

 

When books, primarily religious works, were handwritten, only the wealthy owned Bibles or Qur’ans. Much later, when Gutenberg invented the printing press, written material, both religious and secular, were more widely available, and thus, the spread of schooling and literacy.  Karl, you’ve come a long way.

 

 

 

 

 

 


 

We will open again in the near future for comments again but we do not want all the spam we have been getting. Please keep your comments and questions on the subject of writing or websites. (Note only quality links of mutual interest will be posted) We currently have about 1,600 comments to sort through and my guess is 90 to 95 percent will be spam.

Thank you!
