The ancient Egyptian language is attested in Egypt for over four thousand years, from the appearance of Hieroglyphic writing around BCE, until it was gradually replaced by Arabic after the Arab conquest of Egypt in CE. Ancient Egyptian is considered to be a branch of the Afro-Asiatic language family, meaning that ancient Egyptian has similarities to Akkadian, Arabic and Hebrew, and is quite different from Indo-European languages like English, French and German. These were written in at least four different scripts: Hieroglyphs, Hieratic, Demotic and Coptic.
Changes in Ancient Egyptian Language. These changes reflect the internal evolution of the language but also the impact of the socio-political environment on the language and its writing. During these four millennia, the function of literacy changed as well as the relation between speech and writing. Writing evolved from a formal language rendering religious and royal texts to a more informal language rendering profane and more administrative texts and getting sometimes closer to the spoken language.
