Making the Deaf Hear: Hurrian Nouns in =ikkonni

Much progress in the study of the Hurrian language has been made over the past twenty years, but issues of grammar and lexicon still persist. Advances made with the language have made it necessary to reassess previous translations of Hurrian words. This holds true for nominal forms in =ikkonni, which have been translated as negatives (fōrikkonni “the blind” < fōr- “to see”). This paper reviews past research on these forms and attempts to demonstrate that the =ikkonni derivation actually creates positive nouns.
