The language of Ancient Egypt has been the object of careful investigation since its decipherment in the nineteenth century; but this is the first accessible account which uses the insights of modern linguistics. Antonio Loprieno traces Ancient Egyptian's historical development from Old Egyptian to Coptic; and; combining diachronic and synchronic viewpoints wherever possible; he looks at the hieroglyphic system and its cursive varieties (Hieratic and Demotic); the phonology of Classical Egyptian and Coptic; the phonology and syntax of the literary languages; and semantic and pragmatic constraints on syntax. He also looks at the genetic connections of Egyptian within the Afroasiatic family; especially with Semitic languages such as Akkadian; Arabic; and Hebrew. This book will be essential reading for linguists and Egyptologists alike.
