文字の言語学。現代文字論入門 [Writing Systems: An introduction to their linguistic analysis]

During its long history the problem of reducing language to writing, and conversely that of interpreting written signs as language, has found a variety of solutions which still exist in the form of different writing systems. This richly illustrated textbook introduces the major writing systems of the world from cuneiform to English spelling – explaining their structural makeup and how they work. It also includes a review of the history of writing and a discussion of the literate mind and the literate society.
