MESOPOTAMIAN MYTHOLOGY

The Ancient Gods of Sumer and Babylon...

NAM-SHUB

Mesopotamian concept

Speech with magical connotations and incantations.

Did you know the Sumerians spoke with an Agglutinative tongue? This is even more terrible than you can imagine, because it is a collection of Morphemes (which are in turn syllables) strung together like a sort of gargling. Nam-Shub-Alub-Ablub. No wonder the Tower of Babel got babbled out of existence.
