Letter Writing and Language Change

Edited By Anita Auer, Daniel Schreier, and Richard J. Watts

This book "challenges the assumption that there is only one 'legitimate' and homogenous form of English or of any other language" and "supports the view of different/alternative histories of the English language and will appeal to readers who are skeptical of 'standard' language ideology."

Title: Etymological Dictionary of Egyptian, Volume 2 Etymological Dictionary of Egyptian
Subtitle: Volume Two: b-, p-, f-
Written By: G. Takács

Series Title: Handbook of Oriental Studies. Section 1: The Near and Middle East 48
Description:

The multi-volume Etymological Dictionary of Egyptian by Gábor Takács
'promises to open a new chapter in Egyptian and Afro-Asiatic comparative
lingustics'; (A. Dolgopolsky, in Israel Oriental Studies). 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, will make it an indispensable tool for comparative
purposes and an unchallenged 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.
