Abstract [en]

A thematic and historical survey of the evidence of the Ancient Egyptians' understanding of their own language as a social and abstract construct. The degree to which the Egyptians might have understood their language as a socio-cultural medium reflective of and adapted to different contexts is duscussed, along with their attitude to foreign languages and perception of diachronic processes. In addition, the degree to which the speakers of Egyptian may have viewed their native language as a linguistic and grammatical system is considered in detail.
