Sumerian cuneiform, one of the earliest known writing system. Its origins can be traced back to about 8,000 BC. It developed from the pictographs and other symbols used to represent trade goods and livestock on clay tablets. Sumerian was spoken in Sumer in southern Mesopotamia from perhaps the 4th millennium BC until about 2,000 BC, when it was replaced by Akkadian as a spoken language.  Sumerian is not related to any other known language so is classified as a language isolate.
