"Stemming from statements made by ethnologist Marcel Griaule concerning the language of Mali groups and their linguistic relation to the early Minoan scripts, this book proposes and studies the link between Linear A scripts and the possibility that Niger-Congo is the origin of these signs. By identifying and deciphering signs and comparing grammar and phonological characteristics, the book suggests that Niger-Congo is the birthplace of these linear signs. The Minoan script Linear A is deciphered, and Niger-Congo is examined for its significant structural makeup, its phonological character, and its representation of signs."
