Egyptian Hieroglyphics

Egyptian Hieroglyphics I–II (LLEA 305–306)

These are multi-disciplinary courses that combine language, literature, culture, and history. The courses will look at the morphology, phonology, and grammar of Middle Egyptian (2000-1000 BC). The students will study linguistic aspects and history of the language and interaction of language and culture. By the end of the second semester, the students will have learned to read Middle Egyptian, mastered the grammar, and read portions of the Tale of Sinuhe, one of the oldest narratives in world civilization. At the conclusion of the two courses, the students have read complex Egyptian narratives and should be able to describe the history of Middle Egyptian.
