A Little Egyptian Reading Book
who, who then
this (is), he (is), she (is), it (is)
Egyptian doesn't leave spaces between words, or even sentences, and doesn't have punctuation marks like periods, question marks or commas.
Egyptian does not express the verb "to be." Sentences may simply consist of a subject (or
) and a predicate (or
) directly next to each other.
Adjectives follow the noun they describe. English says "big house;" Egyptian says "house big."
