Learn Hieroglyphs - the Alphabet is the first in a series of Ancient Egyptian Hieroglyphic Tutorials. With this first series you will be able to recognize the 24 hieroglyphs comprising the ancient Egyptian alphabet, also known as the uniliteral hieroglyphs or the sound signs.

Learn Ancient Egyptian Hieroglyphs – Series 1 - Alphabet includes 71 vocabulary words and 56 Determinatives. You will learn how to pronounce the hieroglyphs and you will learn all about transliteration and how scholars write them. There are quizzes for a totaling 214 questions.

Currently there are 4 tutorials in the Learn Hieroglyphs Series and they are:

• Series 1 – Alphabet: also called uniliterals which represent a single consonant sound hence the prefix uni in uniliterals
• Series 2 – Biliterals: - which are the result of combining 2 alphabet signs into one new hieroglyph
• Series 3 – Triliterals: - which are the result of combining 3 alphabet signs into one new hieroglyph
• Series 4 – Determinatives - added to vocabulary words to determine exactly what that word meant

Once you begin studying the hieroglyphs in this book start looking at different hieroglyph wall paintings, artifacts, literature, etc and see how many you can recognize. Remember though that they could be written right to left (the most common way), left to right or vertically.

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

5.0 out of 5 stars RATING REMARKS AND SUGGESTIONS FOR IMPROVEMENT April 27, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Attractive images. Repetition to reinforce learning.

I still don't know how to pronouce one feather and two feathers - they seem to be the same soung "ee". Is the sound "y" the same as "ee" or "Why" as in "bygones". The final summary of answers for each Lesson should have been broken into five units per page to be immediately followed by the hieroglypics answer on the next page. As it stands, the student wouldn't be bothered to flick through over the previous pages to see if his answers are correct.

Very Imformative. I have always wanted to learn Hieroglyphics. I have done very well on
taking the tests. I seem to be retaining fairly well, the signs and their meanings. I look
forward to finishing this book and getting the other volumns.

2.0 out of 5 stars OK for a Dictionary November 19, 2013

Not what I was looking for so I was somewhat disappointed. Reads like a dictionary which is ok, just not what I needed. Still looking for something more text oriented.
