Item description for Etymological Dictionary of Egyptian: A Phonological Introduction (Handbook of Oriental Studies/Handbuch Der Orientalistik) by Gabor Takacs...
This is the introductory volume to a dictionary on the etymological relations between ancient Egyptian and other Afro-asian languages. The amount of material offered, the treatment of scholarly discussions on each item, and the insights into the connections of Egyptian with its related Afro-Asiatic languages, including many new lexical parallels, should make it a useful tool for comparative and interpretive purposes. Volume 1 aims to not only provide users with an analysis of the Afro-Asiatic background of the Egyptian consonant system, but to offer a critical appraisal of linguistic theories on Egyptian historical phonology, and the problems surrounding the origins of the Egyptian language. An extensive bibliography to the dictionary is included.
