 Post subject: Determinatives

Hello to all of you!

:?: are there any current opinions on the question wether determinatives were actually spoken or not?
I came across the question seeing that /jec.nu2.d/ = akk. ercu is
a) lemmatized as /jecnud/ in e-psd
b) there is a ES writing /mu-nu7 for "bed" (and /mu/ = ES for jec/).
Or ist /jic/ in this case just no determinative (which makes senes, meaning "bed" = "wood on which to lie down"

On the other hand, for e-sir2(/3/4/5) "shoe" we have writings with and without det. (if it is one). Regarding that e-sir(2) without /kuc/ means "street", should we not expect /kuc/ in /kuc.e-sir(2/3/4/5) being no determinative at all, but belonging to the word, like /jec/ in /gecnu2.d/? Thus meaning just "street-leather", a very clear term for what we call "shoe"?
But, again, in akkadian writings, we can occasionally find meceenu and ceenu, syllabically written with an additional Det. /kuc/.

Any suggestions - on the examples or on determinatives in general are welcomed.
Thanks,

Andrea
