Perceptual, Grammatical and Hermeneutical Dimensions of Digitality


Giorgio Buccellati    Cotsen Institute of Archaeology, Los Angeles, USA    


Taking the work on the graphemic and morphemic analysis of the cuneiform texts of Ebla as a starting point, the paper reviews the ‘grammatical’ criteria that make digital coding not only more efficient and dynamic, but also intellectually more in tune with the goal of establishing an argument and unfolding a narrative. This throws light on aspects of software application on the one hand (such as the semantic web) and of the digital humanities on the other, ranging from textual to archaeological data.
