COMPARATIVE VOCABULARY
OF
ENGLISH AND EGYPTIAN WORDS

 

The following list of words, extant in the British Isles, compared with Egyptian wordsitself a work of yearsneeds but brief introduction. The title is not meant to be taken literally; it is adopted simply for the sake of classifying the words. The chief authorities for the Egyptian are the Worterbuch of Brugsch[1], the Egyptian Dictionary of Dr. Samuel Birch[2], and the Vocabulaire Hieroglyphique of Paul Pierret[3]. In these the references to the texts are given for each word.

On the English side the Provincial Dictionary of Thomas Wright[4] stands first, but numberless volumes have been ransacked for the result. Celtic, Cymraig, or Gaelic have not been especially drawn upon.

It may be stated generally, that the hieroglyphics contain no phonetic C, D, E, G, J, O, Q, V, W, X, Y, or Z, but that certain of these letters are introduced as equivalents by later Egyptologists. One sign is rendered by L as well as by R.

Paralleled as the words are, they themselves sufficiently explain the laws of permutation or interchange of the equivalent letters.

NOTEThe compiler is, of course, aware that a few of these words may be claimed to have been directly derived from the Latin or Greek, but they are printed here on purpose to raise the question of an independent derivation from a common source. Sane, for example, and sanitary, believed to come from the Latin, may be directly derived from san (Eg.), to heal[18]; and he holds that in this and numerous other instances the Egyptian underlies both.
