About Mayan Writing

Maya hieroglyphic writing known as Mayan Glyphs, was the writing system of the pre-Columbian Maya civilization of Mesoamerica, The calligraphic style and pictorial complexity of Maya glyphs are like no other writing system, it is the only known fully developed written language of the pre-Columbian Americas. Once considered an unsolvable enigma, the decipherment of Maya hieroglyphs has been advancing rapidly in the past few decades, presently it is the only Mesoamerican writing system that has been substantially deciphered.

The Mayan writing was a form of hieroglyphics, or pictographic representations of words similar to Egyptian writing, as well as a phonetic system that represented the sounds of human speech, similar to our alphabet. The Maya hieroglyphic writing is arguably one of the most visually striking writing systems of the world. It is also very complex, with hundreds of unique signs or glyphs in the form of humans, animals, supernatural objects, and abstract designs. These signs are either logograms (to express meaning) or syllabograms (to denote sound values), and are used to write words, phrases, and sentences. In fact, the Maya can write anything that they can say.

The Mayan Word/Name Translation is done by using the phonetic eulogistic translation. It means that a suitable Maya glyph is allocated by the sound of letters.
Examples of Mayan writing have been carefully studied for at least a hundred years, the system was not deciphered until relatively recently.
