This article is a preliminary report on the in-progress publication of unpublished letters written on ostraca coming from Deir el-Medina. It is structured in three parts. The first section provides archaeological and material data on the objects. The second section proposes a typology of the documentation, thus illustrating the interest of a documentary study of the sources to better understand the scribal practices of the time. The third section briefly presents the research perspectives offered by the corpus. [less ▲]

This book contains seventeen papers of the international conference "Sign in Texts: Research on Continuities and Changes in Scribal Practices in Pharaonic, Graeco-Roman and Byzantine Egypt", organized at the University of Liège (2-4 June 2016) by the Liège-based Centre de Documentation de Papyrologie Littéraire (CEDOPAL) and the Egyptology Department. The conference brought into dialogue Egyptologists, classical philologists, papyrologists, demotics, as well as Arabic and Coptic scholars from Belgium, France, Germany, Italy, and the United Kingdom. This volume is a continuation of the proceedings recently published by G. Nocchi Macedo and M.C. Scappaticcio (Signs in Texts, Texts on Signs. Erudition, Reading and Writing in the Greco-Roman world, Liège, 2017, Papyrologica Leodiensia 6), which results itself from a conference held in September 2013 and devoted to the study of signs in Greek and Latin writings from the fourth century BC to the sixteenth century AD. The conference from which this book ensues aimed at studying the scribal practices of the Pharaonic, Greco-Roman, Byzantine and Arab periods (until the eleventh century BC) in the geographical framework of Egypt. It took into account both literary and documentary texts written on papyrus, parchment, ostraca, wood tablets, and stone. The studied languages were Ancient Egyptian (hieroglyphic and hieratic), Arabic, Demotic, Greek, Latin, and Coptic. The second aim of this conference was the identifications of continuities or breaks in the use of signs around the main text. For the very first time, the question of “signs” – defined sometimes as paratextuals, sometimes as diacritics – is discussed within this volume in an interdisciplinary and diachronic perspective.

This paper’s aim is twofold. First, it describes the use of paratextual signs in the New Kingdom medico-magical corpus (c. 1570-1069 BCE) and secondly, it defines their functions, when applicable. The focus lays on hieratic texts written on papyri and ostraca. The shape of the paper follows the internal, or chronological, logic of a text. After a few introductory comments (1-2), we address the layout (3), the copying process, including the structure and the emendations (4), and lastly, the signs put around the text, i.e. the peritext (5). We eventually show the richness of such a study on paratextual signs for a better understanding of scribal practices and textual traditions in Ancient Egyptian texts. [less ▲]

This paper deals with adnominal possession in Ancient Egyptian, focusing on constructions involving a pronominal possessor. In early Egyptian, a single construction is attested: substantive (possessee) + bound person marker (possessor). From the 6th Dynasty onwards, a new construction, which is built from a demonstrative determiner, appears: pAy + bound person marker (possessor) + substantive (possessee). In order to describe the gradual encroachment of the innovative possessive determiner pAy-f on the older construction with the possessive bound person marker, this study proposes a discourse-oriented analysis, using the notion of ‘subjective deixis.’ [less ▲]

Cette dissertation doctorale se propose d’étudier les constructions relatives du néo-égyptien suivant une approche fonctionnelle. Elle offre une première étude large de la relativisation pour cet état de langue sous l’angle de la variation linguistique. Elle comprend deux grandes parties : les chapitres 1 à 4 sont théoriques, les chapitres 5 à 9 constituent la recherche à proprement parler. Le chapitre 10 conclut l’ensemble. Le premier chapitre (Ch. 1) propose un état de la question des études relatives aux constructions relatives en égyptien ancien et met en avant le manque criant de vision d’ensemble des descriptions et des études proposées jusqu’à présent, tous états de langue confondus. Le chapitre suivant (Ch. 2) définit le cadre théorique dans lequel s’inscrit l’étude, à savoir les bases conceptuelles et terminologiques issues du fonctionnalisme en linguistique. J’y fais également le point sur le recours, en égyptologie, à ces théories. Le troisième chapitre (Ch. 3) est consacré à la délimitation et à la description du corpus, l’accent étant mis sur la variation linguistique (en diachronie et en synchronie dynamique). Je propose ensuite (Ch. 4) un préambule ou un excursus relatif à la définition des « parties du discours », catégories d’après lesquelles sont classées les unités qui composent la phrase. La plupart des études fonctionnelles, dont la présente, ont pour objet l’une de ces catégories. Le cinquième chapitre (Ch. 5) offre une vue d’ensemble des constructions relatives et constructions apparentées en égyptien ancien (ancien, moyen et néo). La description, très générale, vise à rendre compte de leurs principales caractéristiques typologiques et des particularités de la langue étudiée. Le chapitre suivant (Ch. 6) est consacré à l’histoire du système : il en présente les grandes tendances distributionnelles aux stades de la langue antérieurs au néo-égyptien. Cette synthèse montre l’existence de jeux d’oppositions à l’œuvre à une époque donnée et permet d’en constater l’évolution au stade concerné. Dans un autre chapitre, (Ch. 7) j’examine en détail l’expression de la négation dans les relatives. Après y avoir exposé les facteurs de variation spécifique à l’évolution de la négation, je propose une taxonomie fonctionnelle des constructions relatives négatives en néo-égyptien. Plus loin (Ch. 8), je me penche sur l’épineuse question de la valeur sémantique des relatives introduites par nty (« vraies » relatives) et de celles introduites par iw (relatives « virtuelles », c’est-à-dire des circonstancielles fonctionnant comme des relatives). Ma démarche, issue d’une réflexion critique à partir des études menées sur les différents types de relatives dans d’autres langues, m’amène à suggérer que, contrairement à ce qui a été dit pour l’égyptien ancien, leur distribution ne dépend pas uniquement de la définition de l’antécédent ou de la nature du relateur, mais que la valeur sémantique – contingente ou non – de la construction relativisée joue un rôle tout aussi important. Cette nouvelle façon d’aborder le problème permet d’apporter une explication quant à la grammaticalisation observée dans la distribution de ces constructions. L’avant dernier chapitre (Ch. 9) propose une étude approfondie de l’omission du pronom de rappel de l’antécédent dans les relatives du néo-égyptien. J’y recours aux concepts d’échelle d’accessibilité à la relativisation élaborée par Keenan & Comrie (1977), d’échelle d’accessibilité cognitive d’Ariel (1990) et aux travaux d’Hawkins (1999, 2004) relatifs à la structure informationnelle de la phrase complexe. Ce faisant, je définis des contextes particulièrement favorables à une omission, et démontre aussi que ces omissions sont en partie motivées par des facteurs extralinguistiques. Le dernier chapitre (Ch. 10) fait office de conclusion générale. Il fait le point sur l’apport des chapitres précédents et sur les différents types de variations mis en évidence dans cette étude.

The goal of this lecture is theory-oriented: we propose a conceptual data model that allows us to deal with complex textual relationships. It is empirically grounded in our experience of digital annotation of Ancient Egyptian texts. This paper is initially born out of the practical need of annotating and linking together hundreds of textual witnesses in the framework of the Ramses project (Polis et al. 2013; Polis & Winand 2013), the aim of which is to build and publish online (http://ramses.ulg.ac.be) the first richly annotated corpus of Late Egyptian texts (c. 1350-900 BCE).

This talk aims at describing the use of paratext in the medico-magical corpus of the New Kingdom (c. 1570-1069). The focus will be on hieratic texts written on papyri and ostraca. The first part will consist in typological considerations. From a formal point of view, paratextual notations will be grouped into three categories: (1) paratextual signs stricto sensu; (2) those that are not paratextual signs strictly speaking, as they are hieroglyphic signs, but that have to be understood as such; (3) the use of other visual means (red ink, size of the characters, blank spaces, …) to indicate that some elements are to be read as paratext. In the second part of the talk, we will define the functions (punctuation, emendation marks, layout marking, reading instructions, ...) and the uses of all these signs. [less ▲]

Ancient Egyptian so-called "virtual" relative clauses (VRC) are adverbial clauses that function like relative clauses. Descriptions provided by Late Egyptian grammars inform students of their existence and provide some translational devices. But they are not sufficient to describe the Late Egyptian relativization system in a linguistic perspective. The talk, given on the occasion of the international Crossroads V conference, aimed at providing interpretive guidelines based on syntax, pragmatics and discourse analysis. In my communication, I showed that discourse analysis proved to be very fruitful in clarifying some contexts of use of LEg VRCs as well as some interpretive processes. [less ▲]

This presentation gives an overview of my research devoted to the Late Egyptian possessive article pAy.f. It aims at examining the uses of an element whose meaning evolved through time. Rather than looking for the very first occurrences of pAy.f in the Old Kingdom texts, my main concern is to analyze closely its progressive spread as well as to outline the gradual steps of its semantic evolution across the pre-amarnian corpus (15th-17th Dyn., c. 1650-1350 b.C.). On the one hand, I highlight the process by which this recent construction gradually encroaches on the older one, and on the other hand, I define the the meanings of pAy.f in relation to its distribution according to text genres.
