Examples

  • So far, you evade this task and my point is that without establishing a consistent value for the word alu in *all* inscriptions in which this word is found while continuing to avoid translating the inscriptions in question **in their entirety** (and mind you, with respect to their archaeological contexts), your theory therefore is lacking in sufficient depth (sufficient, at least, for my tastes).

  • If we posit that Germanic "alu" is a metonym for amuletic magic, as does Mindy Macleod (Runic Amulets and Magical Objects) and also keep in mind Stephen Flowers theory (based on Duwel's) that runic "magical inscriptions" are physical forms of operant vocal formulations (from his article "How To Do Things With Runes: A Semiotic Approach To Operative Communication" as well as his many other works in the public and private domain), from a Raettic/Etruscan verb "(it) is set down".. then this opens up a completely different interpretation of the word and its useage in runic objects and iconography.
