Yeah. I always want to stick that n in there. :lol:

I don't know about anyone else, but I'd love to see an Ancient Egyptian and Akkadian study group form eventually. :P

I would also be fine with a group for Ancient Egyptian and another for Akkadian. I have this for Egyptian in print form, and it seems to be available on archive.org at least and maybe even Google Books.

Why, what's so funny about Budge? :P I'm pretty sure I bought this (well, my dad probably bought it for me) at Barnes & Noble when I was a teenager or something.

Which one is Hayes?

And I forgot to add that with Zólyomi, I planned to ask on here (i.e., ask you, Vijay!) about the linguistic terminology I didn't know.

Ok, then instead of trying to add a third contender into the ring, let's just stick with Zólyomi? Shall we continue on with the next section, or even part of the next section? I believe Antea said she'll try to catch up this week. I assume Eril is caught up.

Don't tempt me! :evil: I would be up for an Ancient Egyptian group. I've never been too intrigued by Akkadian.

Or for the Babylonian one?

If you're sure you don't want to do Hayes, I of course am fine with sticking with Zólyomi.

So you’re going to continue with the first textbook? That’s right?

And, as we are asking, I wonder if someone would be interested by a Coptic study group :hmm: ? :ohwell:

Yeah, I say we do, rather than keep debating about which resource is better, etc.

No problem, Vijay. :wink:

Nothing aside from his stuff is crap based upon what we now know about Ancient Egyptian, and it was also amusing to think you have stuff from the same author I used to have. :P
