This is the first of its kind – an easy to use eBook containing over 3000 hieroglyphic words and their English translations that you can carry to museums, etc. to interpret hieroglyph inscriptions anywhere.
It has an easy to use TOC with categorized searchable contents. Included with the translations are the individual variations which many of these hieroglyphic words have.
You are not limited to referencing a translation of an English word or phrase but also looking up the actual hieroglyphic word you would find on monuments, tombs, Egyptian art, papyri, etc.
There is an alphabetic English to Hieroglyph section with an easily accessible A to Z menu and the more useful section - Hieroglyphic word to English translation.
The Hieroglyph to English section is arranged using the Gardiner sign list categories. According to the Gardiner sign list each hieroglyph is assigned to a Category and then a number within that Category.
- Cat. A – Man and his occupations
- Cat. B – Woman and her occupations
- Cat. C – Anthropomorphic Deities
For example the hieroglyph of a sitting man with both arms bent is in the category of A. Man and his occupations and is the first hieroglyph in this category, therefore: A1.
The symbol of a horse is in the category for mammals E. Mammals and is the sixth hieroglyph in this category, therefore: E6.
Included with each hieroglyphic word is its Transliteration equivalent.
In the exercises section there are 11 sentences for you to translate and the actual hieroglyphs found on a bracelet from Tutankhamen’s tomb that was discovered on the mummy’s right arm.
