    In terms of what I'm looking at I highly recommend "The debate between Silver and Copper" in the original Sumerian. Sumerian is linguistically unclassified but I often find its words incorporated as prefix, suffix or infix with semitic roots, in Hittite and Luwian.

    I understand they are not carrying forward Carol Justus's work on numerals because they don't want their input to spoil it. I like that attitude.
