I think that the writing was invented by the first people at the time when they began to make drawings on the rocks. With their drawings they expressed emotions, stories and life on the rocks, the same is done by essay writers on their papers. So following from this, writing was invented even before there was a certain language to which people communicated. This is really an interesting question that can be debated for a long time. Thank you for this discussion.
not sure but its a very good thing to do!
There are two very closely-timed advents in writing:
- The first is in China, circa 4500 BCE with the old bone counters.
- The second is the early Mesopotamian (Sumerian and early Akkadian) Bullae (Clay Shape markers) or symbol images.
However, both of these were not writing in the strict sense, but counters used as markers of quantity and type for bookkeeping purposes.
The earliest attested writing is the Sumerian Cuneiform writing of southern Mesopotamia (Present day Iraq) circa 4000BCE.
This was followed quickly in the Nile valley (Circa 3800) by the advent of early old kingdom hieroglyphic materials in story.
