In this article (and the following) I will be slowly working through a Middle Egyptian text, The Story of the Shipwrecked Sailor. Each week I will post a few lines of the text for you to work through, so you can work through them at your own pace. A translation, transliteration, as well as comments on the grammar will be made available in the forums each week. So, if you would like to test your translation against another, all you need to do is register for our forums.
Additionally, If you are getting stuck, feel free to ask your questions in the forums. Other people working through the text may have the same problem.
Eventually, once the text is completed, it will be available in full form in a new Egyptian text page that will debut later this year.
Below are the first 7 lines in The Story of the Shipwrecked Sailor, good luck!
