Book Description

This is number 5 in the series of Learn Ancient Egyptian Hieroglyphs. Each eBook in the series can be studied independently of the other. But for a better understanding of the hieroglyphs each title in the series teaches you a different aspect that will enhance your comprehension of the hieroglyphs.

For ease of identification, Sir Alan Gardner created a classification system for hundreds of the more common hieroglyphs. He listed them into easily identifiable groups and his system has become the standard classification system used by Hieroglyph scholars today. To reiterate he only listed the more common hieroglyphs but we have refined his system and added hundreds of their variations for a total of over 2000 hieroglyphs!

The meanings of the hieroglyphs have been derived by Egyptologists over the decades from studying their use on the various Papyri, coffin texts, inscriptions on monuments and tombs, etc..
Each hieroglyph will be listed by Category with its description; its use as an ideogram and/or determinative and/or phonetics; and its possible variations.

• A. Man and his occupations
• B. Women and her occupations

• D. Human Body Parts

4.0 out of 5 stars A useful series for the beginner learner November 23, 2013

DeCarlo has produced a series of very usable dictionary/textbooks for the beginner in Ancient Egyptian language. Unlike some other works of this kind the material transfers well into the e-book format and the whole series are a worthwhile purchase.

5.0 out of 5 stars They work ! February 5, 2013

This volume is more a reference volume to consult. I am nearing the completion of learning and memorizing the third volume in this series. When I first opened volume one I thought it an impossible task but soon mastered it and the second volume. I can not imagine a better series of learning tools.
