Abstract:

The present work proposes a novel analysis of Complement Clauses in Earlier
Egyptian language. Contrary to previous assumptions, the grammatical
organisation of these constructions is shown to be based on differentiation
between Realis and Irrealis modality.

The different types of complement clauses attested in Earlier Egyptian are
surveyed utilising recent linguistic research on modality and pragmatics.
The discussion is based on numerous examples from the ancient texts and on
comparisons with many other languages. Emerging from this investigation is
a coherent and principled system for expressing Realis and Irrealis meaning
in this most ancient of written languages.

This book is of notable value to Egyptologists working with texts and to
all those interested in modality, grammar, and cognition.

Readership: Egyptologists working with grammar and texts, researchers in
linguistics and ancient languages, and all those interested in modality,
pragmatics, language, and cognition.

Keywords: Ancient Egyptian, Modality, Realis and Irrealis
