Budge is both adored and despised by modern egyptologists, his copious amount of work cannot be completely accepted or ignored. This is a good introduction to understanding the syntax of the three types of ancient Egyptian, some of the basic terms, and the functionality of the language as part of life.
Budge. You're probably gonna read him if you're taking a serious look at Egyptian heiroglyphs. Outdated, but more or less necessary. He made significant progress, and more has been made since.
Really enjoyed this, fascinating chapters including the history of Egyptian hieroglyphics and exercises for you to practice with.
totally recommend. it has lots of glyphs illustrated with their meanings. It is very simply explained and a easy read.
I liked Allen's Middle Egyptian better. I dont feel as if he made himself clear.
