Deciphering Ancient is largely made possible because individual characters, or "glyphs," convey meaning. For instance, the glyph meaning "person" connected to the character for "one" creates the word "I" or "me." Adding the glyph indicating possession changes it to "my." More complex words are created by combining multiple glyphs, sometimes using their connotative rather than their literal meanings.

Glyphs[edit]

Words[edit]

All words, meanings and subword explanations have been extracted from the game files. Meanings that end in "?" have only been extracted, i.e. they haven't been verified by players yet. Meanings in italics aren't used in any phrases, and thus can't be confirmed in-game - they exist only in the game files, but are still useful for rounding out the meaning of the word. If all the meanings end in "?" or italics, that word hasn't been seen yet (or no one has recorded it here).

The first meaning for a word is "primary" - you can tell this in-game because when you know a word, if you are using it with a secondary meaning the primary one will appear below in parenthesis. Sometimes the "primary" meaning is not the "common" one: For instance, "act" appears most commonly as "do".

There is a complicated "validation" algorithm that changes the spelling of words after they are assembled from their subwords. This can cause strange results sometimes. For instance, "nowhere" is made from place-not-place (uxu), which makes sense, but after validation the second "place" is removed and it's just u.x
