The old-style spelling books have great appeal as presenting simple words in short lessons to make it easy to acquire a vocabulary of words connected by similar character combinations. This approach is used in combination with exposing the reader to Hieroglyphic characters representing the equivalent Roman letters of the alphabet for each word. The spelling of the words using Hieroglyph characters contained herein is not that of Egyptian words, but of English words. This book is not intended to teach the spelling of Egyptian words. The intent of this book is to provide a method of learning Hieroglyphic characters by sight in much the same way children learn the Roman alphabet. By seeing the same Hieroglyph used in place of a letter in the alphabet the reader will learn to associate that Hieroglyph with the alphabetic letter, and thus form a means to remember it.
