A system of writing in which wedge-shape symbols represented words or syllables. It originated in Mesopotamia and was used initially for Sumerian and Akkadian but later was adapted to represent other languages of western Asia. Because so many symbols had to be learned, literacy was confined to a relatively small group of administrators and scribes.
Because the reed made wedge-shaped impressions, the early pictures, which were more or less realistic, evolved into stylized combinations of strokes and wedges, a system known as cuneiform writing.

Futhermore, cuneiformism also seeks on the restoration of all semitic languages and the return of the use of those languages in all semitic countries, also seeking to restore anunnaki language and also use it in all semitic countries and anunnaki countries.
