Title: Where to learn Kemetic language?
Post by: nandor on February 02, 2018, 03:16:52 am
I would like to ask one question maybe asked before:
Is there a way on the net to learn Kemetic language?
And how the consonants were pronounced in Kemetic language? Is there rule for that?
Thank you

Em hotep nefer, Nandor!

I strongly suggest hunting for James E. Hoch's manuals (which will be somewhat difficult to acquire, but well worth the search and price), and for James P. Allen's instructional texts in Classical Middle Egyptian (which are much less difficult to acquire on all counts).

I hope this helps!

Senebty,
Sedjfai

The Hoch book is available here (https://oi.uchicago.edu/visit/museum-shop-suq) via the Oriental Institute of the University of Chicago.

Rev. Siuda also offers a Middle Egyptian course through her Patreon, if you would like to have an instructor.

The University in Budapest offers classes, both undergrad & graduate courses, in Egyptology. Don't know your location but you could contact them about language classes online. Manchester University offers an undergrad degree online, so perhaps Budapest has something similar? It's always best to be AT a university since the libraries there are superior to anything available online.
Allen's book is excellent but so are many others. He still recognizes Gardiner's Egyptian Grammar as a great resource (+ it's inexpensive)
Good luck! :)

Em Hotep All,

Thanks for the information. As I spend most of my free time Learning Hieroglyphics and Ancient Kemetic. (Fulfilling my Linguistics need )I had no idea about the on line courses. I am so going to look into that.
Thanks!

If you live in Egypt, the American University in Cairo is the place to go. They have great courses there (our mission "Mudira" teaches there) + you'll have access to all the best libraries, the National Archives & Chicago House in Luxor.
