tchaiku,

- The official story is as follows: Linear A is one of two currently undeciphered writing systems used in ancient Greece (Cretan hieroglyphic is the other).
- In 2001, the journal Ugarit-Forschungen published the article "The First Inscription in Punic Vowel Differences in Linear A and B" by Jan Best (the same author I quoted above - he stated it was deciphered in 1981), claiming to demonstrate how and why Linear A notates an archaic form of Phoenician. This was a continuation of attempts by Cyrus Gordon in finding connections between Minoan and West Semitic languages.

Here is C. Gordon's Semitic Inscriptions From Greece.
