 The second type of lexical texts, usually called sign lists, concern lists, whose entries are (predominantly) organized according to the form and appearance of signs. As mentioned earlier, this interpretation does not exclude them from being a word list. On the contrary. Many thematic lists as well as other sub-categories of word lists use the acrographic principle for arranging entries, i.e., listing entries according to the first sign in each entry. At various sites in the course of the 3rd millennium a genre of lists emerged, which appear to share a common ancestor or - similar to the afore-mentioned Practical Vocabularies - a common idea. They organize entries according to a selection of signs (or groups of signs) in subsequent sections. Except for one example ([[http://​cdli.ucla.edu/​P010573|SF 7]]) the boundaries between the sections are not marked. \\ The second type of lexical texts, usually called sign lists, concern lists, whose entries are (predominantly) organized according to the form and appearance of signs.

-In the early second millennium a list emerges, whose importance for the scribal education is evident based on its content.

This list called //​Tu-ta-ti//​ according to its incipit deals with variations of syllables based on the vocalic schema //u// - //a// - //​i//​. ​The last-mentioned list is strictly speaking a sign exercise and stands rather at the beginning of the scribal education. \\

 +There are quite a few further types of texts that belong to the genre of lexical lists. One among these is a //​phrasebook//​ known already in the first half of the 2nd millennium under the heading **ki-ulutin-bi-še<​sub>​3</​sub>​** or //Ana ittišu//. Some features of this list can be paired with grammatical texts dealing with extensive, but partial inventories of grammatical forms, most notably paradigms of the Sumerian verb. //Ana ittišu// contains a wide range of legal terminology. \\
