Book Information


Title: Etymological Dictionary of Egyptian
Subtitle: Volume Three: m-
Written By: Gábor Takács
Series Title: Handbook of Oriental Studies. Section 1: The Near and Middle East, Vol 3

This is the third volume of the Etymological Dictionary of Egyptian.
It comprises the Egyptian words with initial m-. 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.

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.
