Hittite/Hurrian Mythology The Hurrians occupied the land between the Hittites and Assyria, having descended from the mountains south of the Caspian Sea. They ruled the kingdom of Mitanni. In the late 15th century B.C. the Hittite empire's beginning is marked by an influx of Hurrian names into the royal family. Tudhalyas I (1420 B.C.) reunited Western Anatolia under Hittite rule, and retook Allepo but lost the Black Sea coast to the Kaska tribes. After some difficulty with the Mittani the Hittites resurged under King Suppilulimas around 1344-1322 taking a firmer hold on Syria. The Hittites were a patriarchal, highly agricultural society. You will notice that many of the names carry an optional 's' as a suffix, which comes from the nominative case ending for Hittite. Alalu(s) He was the king in heaven in olden days and Anus was the first among the gods. Anu(s) (Akkadian in origin) While Alalus was king in heaven, Anus was more powerful. Kumarbi(s) - 'the father of all gods' according to the Hurrians. Imbaluris Takitis

Fairy tales are found in oral and in literary form. The history of the fairy tale is particularly difficult to trace because only the literary forms can survive. Still, the evidence of literary works at least indicates that fairy tales have existed for thousands of years, although not perhaps recognized as a genre; the name "fairy tale" was first ascribed to them by Madame d'Aulnoy in the late 17th century. The older fairy tales were intended for an audience of adults, as well as children, but they were associated with children as early as the writings of the précieuses; the Brothers Grimm titled their collection Children's and Household Tales, and the link with children has only grown stronger with time. Folklorists have classified fairy tales in various ways. Terminology[edit] Definition[edit] History of the genre[edit] Folk and literary[edit] History[edit] Later works[edit]

Hebrew Alphabet The Hebrew and Yiddish languages use a different alphabet than English. The picture below illustrates the Hebrew alphabet, in Hebrew alphabetical order. Note that Hebrew is written from right to left, rather than left to right as in English, so Alef is the first letter of the Hebrew alphabet and Tav is the last. The Hebrew alphabet is often called the "alefbet," because of its first two letters. Letters of the Alefbet Table 1: The Hebrew Alphabet If this sounds like Greek to you, you're not far off! The "Kh" and the "Ch" are pronounced as in German or Scottish, a throat clearing noise, not as the "ch" in "chair." Note that there are two versions of some letters. Vowels and Points Like most early Semitic alphabetic writing systems, the alefbet has no vowels. However, as Hebrew literacy declined, particularly after the Romans expelled the Jews from Israel, the rabbis recognized the need for aids to pronunciation, so they developed a system of dots and dashes called nikkud (points).

Germanic Mythology: Texts, Translations, Scholarship Latin Alphabet and Pronunciation Latin Alphabet Learning the Latin alphabet is very important because its structure is used in every day conversation. Without it, you will not be able to say words properly even if you know how to write those words. Below is a table showing the Latin alphabet and how it is pronounced in English, and finally examples of how those letters would sound if you place them in a word. Latin Pronunciation You saw how a letter is written and might be pronounced, but there is nothing better than hearing the sound of the letters in a video or audio. The alphabet and its pronunciation have a very important role in Latin, therefore they need very special attention.
