Middle Egyptian Lessons

The following lessons will familiarize you with some of the basic concepts of Middle Egyptian. They are as much here for you as the are for me. I’m not a linguist, I’m a student. Creating these lessons has helped me reinforce what I have been taught.  They are meant to be base from which to build your knowledge of the language, rather than a comprehensive introduction. For a more in depth guide to Middle Egyptian, consider purchasing a Middle Egyptian Grammar (I recommend James E. Hoch’s Middle Egyptian Grammar!) as well as a copy of Raymond O. Faulkner’s Dictionary of Middle Egyptian, an invaluable resource for beginners. Good luck!
