1 Commentaire
With this simplified guide you can learn to understand and transcribe Egyptian hieroglyphics yourself. The heart of the book is the clear description and presentation of 134 phonetic elements. On each half-page of the book there is a large sign with its phonetic value and a frame containing examples of words in which the sign figures. In each compartment appears its phonetic transcription, and in the central column, its translation.
