Title: Questions of Egyptian Historical Phonology and Afro-Asiatic
Author(s): TAKÁCS, Gábor
Journal: Bibliotheca Orientalis
Volume: 72 Issue: 5-6 Date: 2015
The new monograph on Egyptian historical grammar by J.P. Allen appeared merely some two decades after A. Loprieno’s (1995) book with similar scope and aims. In this review article, the reviewer is investigating whether the author has managed to yield a new synthesis in the swampy domain of historical phonology, by determining to what extent his material reflects and matches our knowledge on the subject hitherto accumulated on the one hand and how convincing the new solutions are on the other hand.
