‘Linear B, a New Outlook’, by Nicholas A. Massouridis, is the product of thirty years’ study of the phonetic values of the signs of the Linear B script.

Proof that Massouridis's method is correct is demonstrated by the fact that the values have been applied by his son, Pandelis Massouridis, for over ten years. They have also been applied for the first time to the reading of dedications and Linear A tablets from Ayia Triada.

Readers will be enchanted by the wonderful world and descriptive wealth of the composite words of the Greek language found in the tablets, as this language evolved towards the Homeric dialect.
