Adviser: Peter Z. Revesz AIDA, the Ancient Inscription Database and Analytic system can be used to translate and analyze ancient Minoan language. The AIDA system currently stores three types of ancient Minoan inscriptions: Linear A, Cretan Hieroglyph and Phaistos Disk inscriptions. In addition, AIDA provides candidate syllabic values and translations of Minoan words and inscriptions into English. The AIDA system allows the users to change these candidate phonetic assignments to the Linear A,

Hence the AIDA system provides for various scholars not only a convenient online resource to browse Minoan inscriptions but also provides an analysis tool to explore various options of phonetic assignments and their implications. Such explorations can aid in the decipherment of Minoan inscriptions. iii DEDICATION To my parent iv ACKNOWLEDGMENTS I would like to express my gratitude and appreciation to my thesis advisor Prof. Peter Revesz of the department of computer science at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. Prof. Revesz was always ready for my questions about my research or writing. Not only his great ideas steered me in the right direction, but without his support, the completion of this work was not possible.
