Chapter Summary

This chapter analyzes Carian texts from the 'easiest' to the 'most difficult', beginning with those that contain only very basic onomastic formulae. It also analyzes the inscriptions of the Memphis sub-corpus, where one can find more complex onomastic formulae, but no recognizable verbal forms are attested. This analysis is also allows to identify some common nouns used in the formulae of these funerary texts. The chapter offers an analysis of some brief inscriptions (mainly on objects) that seem to contain forms other than onomastic formulae. Finally, a few aspects of the interpretation of the longer inscriptions, where there are serious difficulties of analysis, are briefly addressed.

Keywords: Carian inscriptions; common nouns; Memphis sub-corpus; onomastic formulae
