Egyptian Language, Easy Lessons in Egyptian Hieroglyphics is a beginner's instruction manual written in 1910 by Egyptologist and hieroglyphic expert Sir Ernest A. Wallis Budge. Intended as an easy introduction for anyone interested in learning the ancient Egyptian writing of hieroglyphics, Egyptian Language includes a short history on hieroglyphs, including the discovery of the Rosetta Stone, and lessons in phonetics and ideographs, parts of speech, and extracts of real Egyptian works (such as The Book of the Dead) with which to practice. SIR ERNEST ALFRED THOMPSON WALLIS BUDGE (1857-1934) was born in Bodmin, Cornwall in the UK and discovered an interest in languages at a very early age. Budge spent all his free time learning and discovering Semitic languages, including Assyrian, Syriac, and Hebrew. Eventually, through a close contact, he was able to acquire a job working with Egyptian and Iraqi artifacts at the British Museum. Budge excavated and deciphered numerous cuneiform and hieroglyphic documents, contributing vastly to the museum's collection. Eventually, he became the Keeper of his department, specializing in Egyptology. Budge wrote many books during his lifetime, most specializing in Egyptian life, religion, and language.
This volume will appeal to those with an interest in Egyptian hieroglyphics and the history and development of deciphering them. Many vintage books such as this are increasingly scarce and expensive.

The dearth of suitable introductory texts presents a serious obstacle to the study of the Egyptian language, so this practical grammar answers a longstanding need. Its well-known and highly respected author, a Keeper of the Egyptian and Assyrian Antiquities at the British Museum, has written many other popular Dover books on Egyptology. Contents include lists of frequently used signs and determinatives, a short vocabulary of about 500 words, a series of 31 texts and extracts (with interlinear transliteration and word-for-word translation), and a few untransliterated and untranslated texts (with glossary), to be worked out independently. This is a valuable book for archaeologists, anthropologists, and anyone with a professional or amateur interest in Ancient Egypt.
