Attempts to establish, from the North-West Semitic side, the phonetic correspondences between North-West Semitic (Phoenician, Aramaic, Hebrew, and Ugaritic) and ancient Egypt chronologically. Examines how North-West Semitic scribes wrote Egyptian in their Semitic writing systems, with concentration on consonantal correspondences. Shows historical changes and real sound values of Egyptian consonants, and examines Aramaic, Hebrew, and Ugaritic to shed light on Egyptian vocalization.
