Lingua Aegyptia (recommended abbreviation: LingAeg) publishes articles and book reviews on all aspects of Egyptian and Coptic language and literature in the narrower sense: (a) grammar, including graphemics, phonology, morphology, syntax, semantics, pragmatics, lexicography; (b) Egyptian language history, including norms, diachrony, dialectology, typology; (c) comparative linguistics, including Afroasiatic contacts, loanwords; (d) theory and history of Egyptian literature and literary discourse; (e) history of Egyptological linguistics. We also welcome contributions on other aspects of Egyptology and neighbouring disciplines, in so far as they relate to the journal's scope. Short articles on grammar and lexicon will be published in the section 'Miscellanies'. Authors will receive electronic off-prints.
