It's too bad that the Egyptians only wrote abjadically.
(Lit.: that the Egyptians only wrote with hard sounds, i.e. consonants, is not fortunate.)

The Afro-Asiatic language group is making me interested right now; I should look in the Pile for information on it.

(I would have written "instead of looking on Wikipedia", but I haven't figured out how to say "instead of" yet.)

Please get in the habit of putting contemporary written English in those posts. While it is probably possible for most members to figure out what it means, do remember that the process may be long and tedious for 2L speakers of American English. And on a more administrative note it is generally expected for conlangs to be translated and we don't want to set precedent of it being optional for every fuck who decides to make a future English, of which there are many.
