Written and spoken for about 4,000 years in ancient Egypt, Egyptian is no longer a living language. But while Arabic is the major language of that country today, Egyptian is still used by students, historians, and archaeologists studying this remote civilization. They traditionally begin by studying Middle, or Classical, Egyptian, which is written in hieroglyphic script. This compact handbook for beginners starts with a discussion of the nature of Middle Egyptian and its script, followed by instructions for forming nouns, pronouns, adjectives, numerals, verbs, and other grammatic elements. A list of hieroglyphs, a vocabulary section, and reading exercises complete a book that will aid students of Egyptology and anyone interested in the culture of ancient Egypt. Unabridged republication of the edition published by Humphrey Milford, London, 1920.
