Technical Terms in Ancient Egyptian

"What follows is not really a single essay, but rather extracts from two sources. Part I is taken from a book review of A. G. McDowell, Jurisdiction in the Workmen’s Community of Deir el-Medina, Egyptologische Uitgaven 5 (Leiden: Nederlands Instituut voor het Nabije Oosten, 1990) published in Discussions in Egyptology 23 (1992): 99–109. I wish to thank Alessandra Nibbi, the editor of the journal, for granting me permission to re-"print" (I don’t know what other term to use) the discussion here. Part II is from a manuscript in progress whose working title is Aspects of Amarna Belief."
