Item description for Etymological Dictionary of Egyptian: B-, P-, F- (Handbook of Oriental Studies/Handbuch Der Orientalistik) by Gabor Takacs...
This title seeks to open a new chapter in Egyptian and Afro-Asiatic comparative lingustics. The amount of material offered, the extensive treatment of scholarly discussions on each item, and the insights into the connections of Egyptian and the related Afro-Asiatic (Semito-Hamitic) languages, including many new lexical parallels, should make it an indispensable tool for comparative purposes and a starting point for every linguist in the field. This second volume is in fact the first volume of the very etymological dictionary. It comprises the Egyptian words with initial b-, p-, and f-. The reader will find the etymological entries even more detailed than those of the introductory volume, due to the full retrospective presentation of all etymologies proposed since A. Erman's time, and thanks to an extremely detailed discussion of all possible relevant data even on the less known Afro-Asiatic cognates to the Egyptian roots.
