Meanings of the Linear-Script Signs (The). Writing systems such as LinA, LinB, and LinC use the acrophonic principle to assign phonetic values to the signs that are used to write words.  An understanding of the meanings behind the linear-script signs could provide much insight about both underlying cultures.
