Faulkner's egyptian Dictionary, along with Gardiners Egyptian Grammar, is one of the two key works in the library of any scholar of middle egyptian. Both are important works for the student, but I, having given up studying egyptian some years ago, still look through Faulkner on occasions simply in order to turn the pages of an immense and pioneering piece of scholarship which would otherwise languish rather forgotten.
Faulkner, writing in a time before the development of Egyptian typefaces, hand wrote each page of the disctionary in a beautiful neat hand. The disctionary is therefore one of the few works still in publication which could be considered a "hand written book". So what? A million medieval monks spent their times in the copying of concordances and the illumination of bibles. True. But they were working in their mother tongue - Latin for the most part. Faulkner was working in a language which was almost entirely unknown and undocumented. Each one of his entries must therefore have been the result of a small but significant measure of careful scholarship- and one that has clearly stood the test of other academics' critisms. If you are a student of Egyptian, you probably already have this book. But even if you aren't, buy it anyway, because it is one of the most unusual curiosities in the literary world.

This bedazzling lexicon of universal wonders will for fill your hieroglyphical appetite to its max. it is printed in original note form with transliteration and translation of the hieroglyphs. i've really have only just started studying the language and i have to say the book is a must have for anyone who is a beginner or expert in the language. it do ancient greek and latin aswell but out of all the three ancient languages i do this dictionary has to be the most exciting. it has over 5400 words or something like that and i think it fully equips you for large text translations. i can't wait to go and try it out in the british museum. in fact don't even bother reading the review just bye the book

This is the best dictionary I have seen around. It only contains egyptian - english and not english - egyptian, though. Still, a must for anyone studying or translating hieroglyphs and it has been a huge help to me.

I'm using this book to transliterate and translate Middle Egyptian hieroglyphs to English. I've used it so much it makes crackling sounds when I open it. To be absolutely perfect, it would benefit from a list of single consonants (Egyptian w comes well before m), so I can index better and it would be really useful to have a hieroglyphs listing, so I don't have to carry two books around. You can tell I'm a novice. I don't know what I would do without it.
