  • Awakening Osirisby Normandi Ellis

  • Conjunction, Contiguity, Contingencyby Leo Depuydt

    Oxford University Press 1993; US$ 149.99

    Language is in large part about the description of events occurring in the world around us. Relationships of different sorts may be perceived between those events. And some of these relationships can be expressed by specific verb forms--or by syntactic constructions involving specific verb forms. The present study examines this facet of the Egyptian... more...

  • Cracking the Egyptian Codeby Andrew Robinson

    Oxford University Press, USA 2012; US$ 21.99

    In 1799 Napoleon's army uncovered an ancient stele in the Nile delta. Its inscription, recorded in three distinct scripts--ancient Greek, Coptic, and hieroglyphic--would provide scholars with the first clues to unlocking the secrets of Egyptian hieroglyphs, a language lost for nearly two millennia. More than twenty years later a remarkably gifted... more...
