Title: An Elementary Grammar of the Ancient Egyptian Language in the Hieroglyphic Type
Written By: P. Le Page Renouf
Series Title: LINCOM Gramatica 18
Description:

New Edition

The Elemcntary Grammar contained in this volume is available for all
hieroglyphic texts written whilst the old Egyptian was still a living language,
and the hieroglyphic system of writing continued in its original purity. It is of
the utmost importance that the student should begin with these texts, for
although the vocabulary and grammar of the later inscriptions resemble those
of the better period, as closely as modern Latin does that of the ancient, and
although the contents of these inscriptions are often of the highest historical
and archeological interest, the hieroglyphic system which they exhibit is
extremely corrupt, particularly in the Roman period; it confounds articulations
which the ancient Egyptians scrupulously distinguished, signs originally
syllabic are used with purely alphabetic values, the ancient values are
sometimes ignored and entirely new ones substituted. When the original
System is more thoroughly known, the corruptions which it has suffered will
be readily learnt (from the preface of the 1875 edition).

Contents:
Hieroglyphic Signs,
Hieroglyphic Vocabulary,
Nouns and Adjectives,
Numbers,
Ordinals,
Pronouns Prepositions,
Adverbs and Conjunctions,
