Excerpt from An Egyptian Hieroglyphic Dictionary, Vol. 1 of 2: With an Index of English Words, King List and Geographical List With Indexes, List of Hieroglyphic Characters, Coptic and Semitic Alphabets, Etc
Curiously enough Young did not follow up his discovery by a continue... d application of his phonetic principle to Egyptian inscriptions other than those on the Rosetta Stone, but seems to have been content to leave its further application and development to Champollion 1e Jeune.2 And for some reason he made no attempt to add to the Egyptian Vocabulary containing 218 words which he published in his article egypt in the Encyclo/xedia Britannica, or if he did, his additions were never printed. On the other hand, he devoted himself to the preparation of a Demotic Dictionary and this work occupied the last ten years of his life. The Advertise ment is of considerable interest, for it shows that it was only his inability to decide upon the system of arrangement that ought to be employed in an Egyptian Dictionary, that prevented him from publishing the work during his lifetime. His difficulty is described by him thus.
