DECODING EGYPTIAN HIEROGLYPHS - HOW TO READ THE SECRET LANGUAGE OF THE PHARAOS

DECODING EGYPTIAN HIEROGLYPHS - HOW TO READ THE SECRET LANGUAGE OF THE PHARAOS

The French linguist who decoded the Rosetta Stone took 14 years to do so; amateur translators would find the task much simpler with Decoding Egyptian Hieroglyphs: How to Read the Secret Language of the Pharaohs by British doctoral student Bridget McDermott. For instance: "a water pot on a human leg, a bread loaf and a flesh sign together" means "meat." The colorful text, a marriage between coffee-table picture book and high school language workbook, offers photographs of ancient inscriptions with sidebars clarifying their meaning as well as pronunciation and grammar guides, magic spells, maps, mythology and basic Egyptian history.
