Note: This title is a new edition of a previously announced book.

Middle Egyptian introduces the reader to the writing system of ancient
Egypt and the language of hieroglyphic texts. It contains twenty-six
lessons, exercises (with answers), a list of hieroglyphic signs, and a
dictionary. It also includes a series of twenty-five essays on the most
important aspects of ancient Egyptian history, society, religion and
literature. The combination of grammar lessons and cultural essays allows
users to not only read hieroglyphic texts but also to understand them,
providing readers with the foundation to understand texts on monuments and
to read great works of ancient Egyptian literature in the original text.
This second edition contains revised exercises and essays, providing an up
to date account of current research and discoveries. New illustrations
enhance discussions and examples. These additions combine with the
previous edition to create a complete grammatical description of the classical
language of ancient Egypt for specialists in linguistics and other fields.
