2. Some rules for writing

By identification and wiring for sound of the syllabic signs, the findings for writing isolated consonants and vowels so far described, as well as deciphering the ligatures, certain necessary conditions were discovered for a further analysis of the rules for writing and reading the analyzed text.

2.1. Writing superlatives of adjectives

Writing the syllabic signs one on the other or one over the other, it is possible to form superlative forms of adjectives in an effective way in those languages which do not contain the prefix нај_ [nai] (equivalent to English the  …… _est/ the most ……).  In that case the basic form of the adjective was written above the sign for the syllable Jь[jь].

In the analyzed text, more cases of formation of superlative form in this way were identified, and we are giving below some examples of them, such as:


2.2. Writing the plural of nouns

In many Slavic languages, and especially in the Macedonian language, the plural of nouns and adjectives is often formed by adding и[i] at the end of the noun in singular.  In the analyzed text, we also identified the formation of the plural in this way, as in the example: 

It is very important to mention that in [9], the authors are claming that for forming the plural of nouns a vertical line was added at the end of the word.  However, in contrast to our research and findings, the authors treat the sign for vertical line only as a simple mark for the plural.  This is completely comprehensible if it is known that according to [9] it is not possible to read the demotic script sign for sign (in accordance with our findings that corresponds to reading/writing syllable for syllable), but is being read word for word.

2.3. Non-defining and defining form of nouns

While reading the analyzed text we identified nouns in the definite and indefinite form, in the singular, as well as in the plural.

The definite article for singular is то[to], and for the plural is та[ta], equivalent in English the. 

In several other cases the definite form of nouns was made by adding мо[mo] (some type of case form) as in the example:
