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 volumes!
There are numerous very useful comments and insights into the ancient cultures of the Nile.

I avoided Budge for years because of Daniel Jackson, yes the fictional character, disparaging him in Stargate. No joke :)

It takes a while for the new coming reader to get used to the way the dictionary is laid out because it's chronicled using the Ancient Egyptian alphabetic chart (according to Champollion and other sources, namely the author: Budge). It has helped me out in sticky spots where I didn't know a word (sometimes it seemed like it was a hapax Legomenon, but proved not to be).

The most comprehensive book on this area of study that I have read to date. Budge did a good job explaining in plain English the meaning of personal and place names which can be used to interpret sacred texts such as the Pert em Hru and the Pyramid Texts.

Bought this today for $2 in a close-out pile. Had a big red sticker on it, so I didn't realize it's volume 1 of 2. Oops. My bad.
