An Egyptian Hieroglyphic Dictionary With an Index of English Words King List and Geographical List with Indexes List of Hieroglyphic Characters Coptic and Semitic Alphabets Vol 1The second volume there's an index of English words with 60000 entries This forms an extremely handy English Egyptian glossary Also included in this volume are hieroglyphic lists of royal and geographical names with separate indexes to these lists and indexes of Coptic and non Egyptian words uoted in the dictionary itself with a separate section for non Egyptian geographical namesThe long scholarly and informative introduction outlines the history of the decipherment in Europe of Egyptian hieroglyphs and lexicography citing such pioneers as Akerblad Young Champollion le Jeune Birch Lepsius Brugsch Chabas Goodwin E de Rougé and others explains the principles of the present work and offers a full bibliography Everything you need to study hieroglyphs is in these two volumes. I avoided Budge for years because of Daniel Jackson yes the fictional character disparaging him in Stargate No joke Eventually though I wanted easy access to the actual arrangement a wild mess of art over form or form over art but ha ha which one is in use at any given moment doesn't have a determinative to guide us of long form Egyptian prose and Budge's public domain stuff is great for that and then I discovered his translations are actually pretty good It was still early after the initial decipherment and he was so obviously an enthusiastic and sometimes fanciful learner kind of like Sir Arthur Evans is in the Minoan domain I like reading Budge's work and comparing it with modern interpretation There's big and little phonetic variants but a lot of the lexical stuff is reasonably sound inasmuch as we'll ever read ancient Egyptian especially hapax legomenon or rarely used configurations with confidence

The two volume Hieroglyphic Dictionary is still a very useful work This massive work is well organized You should buy BOTH volumes 1 and 2 in order to properly use the dictionary Keep in mind that volume 2 contains the various indexes for both volumes and part of the huge dictionary of ancient Egyptian words and the index of all the English words So you need both volumesThere are numerous very useful comments and insights into the ancient cultures of the NileBudge was an expert in Semitic languages and in Coptic He was a talented and skilled linguist who could read the ancient Egyptian language as well if not better than most scholars today Many points of ancient Egyptian grammar and exact word meanings are unknown and much of what passes for modern scholarship is mere guessworkIt is interesting to note that people who can't read a word of ancient Egyptian have the audacity to criticize a profoundly erudite and talented linguist and translator of many ancient Semitic and ancient Egyptian textAfter many many years of study of almost every aspect of ancient Egypt culture Budge abandoned the pure assertion that ancient Egypt was an Oriental or Eastern culture Based largely I imagine on Hegel's pure assertions that The History of the World travels from East to West for Europe is absolutely the end of History Asia the beginning These ideas have become part of European intellectual DOGMA Africa is not a part of human history; Ancient Egypt belongs to Europe This is pure DOGMA Hegel's children are still among usBut on the other hand after years of objective study of the language religion society and customs of the ancient Egyptians Budge was led screaming and kicking I might add to the realization that the religion of the Egyptians was BLACK AFRICAN The concept of the ka and the ba are found almost everywhere in Black Africa today The language was a BLACK AFRICAN language and the customs were purely African The ancient Egyptians were African Negroes or Nilotic Negroes wrote Budge in several of his later works In spite of the anti African racism that we find in his earlier and even his later works Budge rose above the strong prejudices of his time and followed the facts The facts led to the heart of Africa not to AsiaBudge seems to be thinking out aloud when he writes in the Introduction of Vol 1 of Hieroglyphic Dictionary lxviiithese words which led in part to his banishment from halls of western ACADEME no one who has worked at Egyptian can possibly doubt that there are many Semitic words in the language or that many of the pronouns some of the numbers and some of the grammatical forms resemble those found in the Semitic languages But even admitting all the similarities that Erman has claimed it is still impossible to me to believe that Egyptian is a Semitic language fundamentallyThere is it is true much in the Pyramid Texts that recalls points and details of Semitic Grammarbut after deducting all the triliteral roots there still remains a very large number of words that are not Semitic and were never invented by a Semitic people These words are monosyllabic and were invented by one of the oldest Africanor Hamitic if that word be preferredpeoples in the Valley of the Nile of whose written language we have any remainsThese words are used to express fundamental relationships and feelings and beliefs which are peculiarly African and are foreign in every particular to Semitic peoples The primitive home of the people who invented these words lay far to the south of Egypt and all that we know of the Predynastic Egyptians suggests that it was in the neighborhood of the Great Lakes probably to the east of themEven Champollion Le Jeune the man who first deciphered ancient Egyptian in his Grammaire Egyptiennepxix Introduction says virtually the same thing Like ChampollionBudge was a true scholar who followed the facts where ever those facts ledMany modern African scholars have confirmed that the language of ancient Egypt was a typical Black African languageFor example Dr Theophile ObengaORIGINE COMMUNE DE L'EGYPTIEN ANCIEN DU COPTE ET DES LANGUES NEGRO AFRICAINES MODERNES has proven the genetic linguistic relationship between the language spoken by the ancient Egyptians Coptic and modern Black African languages No competent linguist can demonstrate that the language of ancient Egypt has any genetic relationship to the Semitic languagesit can not be doneIn fact Dr Theophile Obenga a native speaker of Mbochi Lingala and several other African languages has put forth a new classification of African languages based on modern linguisticsNo Hamito Semitic Afro Asiatic or Afrasan language familiesWhen you study the language of ancient Egypt you study an ancient Black African languageBudge dared follow the truth even if it led him outside of the Eurocentric white supremacy intellectual paradigmMost Eurocentric scholars go along with the program they place tenureacceptance and prestige above scholarship The world of Western scholarship can sometimes be too narrow too petty and too deeply rooted in its religiouscultural and racial dogmas Ethnocentrism seems to almost always distort scholarshipBudge's two volume dictionary is often slandered because of his system of transliteration and the so called advances made in understanding and translating the language of ancient Nile Valley Egypto Nubian civilizations Modern African scholars such as Theophile Obenga Cheikh Anta Diop Babacar Sall and a host of others have demonstrated time and time again that the language of Ancient Egypt can be only fully understand within its Black African social religious ethnic and cultural contexts The old Greenberg classification of African languages must be rejected in the face of the works of Obenga It is now understood that the language of ancient Egypt can not be fully understood outside of its Negro African cultural ethnic social and religious contextThis huge two volume dictionary would be a welcomed addition to any serious student of the ancient language of KmtEgypt

My colleague who is an actual Egyptologist says this dictionary is very outdated full of mistakes and can't be used today in all seriousness There are other modern dictionaries which are very good But this one is hilarious to explore I enjoy it
