Ancient Egyptian: A Linguistic Introduction
"Recommended as an essential introductory book to Egyptian language." The Reader's Review"As one would expect from this expert in Afroasiatic aspect studies, this is an exemplary application of current textlinguistic thinking to an ancient language and it will certainly inform the work of any Semitist....Semitists also have a lot to gain on the subjects of word order and clausal relations. The discussions of TAM and negation functions and grammaticalization rate among the main contributions for linguists not concerned with Afroasiatic languages. Loprieno ends with a very provacative bried reference to an issue close to the life of any field linguist-the relation between writing system and cultural ideology." Andy Warren, Notes on Linguistics"This book is no doubt a turning point in the study of Egyptian language with potential far reaching impact, and should be consulted by linguists and Egyptologists alike." Mu-Chou Poo, The International Journal of African Historical Studies"Loprieno's book is therefore most welcome and will serve as an excellent, state-of-the-field account of Ancient Egyptian. As a general linguistic and diachronic account, it bridges the gap between specialist grammars and linguists and others who want an overview of Egyptian. The book will be particularly useful for those who teach later stages of the Egyptian language (demotic and Coptic) to students who have not done prior work in Egyptian. Those who have had some training of are at the beginning stages of learning Egyptian will find the index of passages very helpful." J.G.
