1.4. Writing of ligatures

It is obvious that in the text syllabic signs have not only been written next to each other, but they have also been written one above the other, as in the example:

We call these forms ligatures and we think that they reflect a specific characteristic of the language which was being expressed through the script.

In most cases there are 2 to 3 signs in the ligatures. As a rule, the beginning of a word was written with a ligature, whereas the end of the word whose beginning was written in a form of ligature was realized with one and very rarely with 2 to 3 syllables (signs).
