The Egyptian Root Lexicon presents the envisaged roots of the Egyptian words, hypothetically established on the basis of attested lexemes on obvious phonetic and semantic resemblance. As the etymological research in the field of Afro-Asiatic is not sufficiently advanced, the lexical roots are not set up on an etymological basis. The main part of the book contains the roots (numerically marked with DRID identifier) in alphabetic arrangement, with their subsequent lexemes marked with an identity number, the “ID,” as created by the Thesaurus Linguae Aegyptiae (TLA), of the Berlin Academy of Sciences. The roots section is followed by extensive indexes, including a lexeme index and an index of roots of Semitic origin. A selected bibliography concludes the work.
