Ancient Egypt­ian phonol­o­gy
In Ancient Egypt­ian Phonol­o­gy. James Allen stud­ies the sounds of the lan­guage spo­ken by the ancient Egyp­tians through appli­ca­tion of the most recent method­olog­i­cal advances for phono­log­i­cal recon­struc­tion. Using the inter­nal evi­dence of the lan­guage, he pro­ceeds from indi­vid­ual vow­els and con­so­nants to the sound of actu­al ancient Egypt­ian texts. Allen also explores vari­ants, alter­nants, and the devel­op­ment of sound in texts, and touch­es on exter­nal evi­dence from Afroasi­at­ic cog­nate lan­guages. The most up to date work on this top­ic, Ancient Egypt­ian Phonol­o­gy is an essen­tial resource for Egyp­tol­o­gists and will also be of inter­est to schol­ars and lin­guists of African and Semit­ic lan­guages.

Yid­dish The­ater
The his­to­ry of the Yid­dish the­ater is not a straight­for­ward one. In tra­di­tion­al Judaism, the­atri­cal per­for­mances could only put on at the fes­ti­val of Purim and by men. The texts per­formed that have come down to us are no ful­ly devel­oped dra­mas. This appar­ent­ly start­ed to change around 1700, since some texts of plays which have been pre­served from that peri­od onwards have the hall­marks of con­tem­po­rary dra­ma. How­ev­er, we can only speak of a mod­ern pro­fes­sion­al Yid­dish the­ater from the sec­ond half of the nine­teenth cen­tu­ry.
In this pub­li­ca­tion, Evi Michels dis­cuss­es the devel­op­ments in the ear­ly mod­ern peri­od with a spe­cial empha­sis on Ams­ter­dam, and Alyssa Quint describes the begin­nings of the mod­ern Yid­dish the­ater.
