Citing from the Thesaurus Linguae Aegyptiae

For the purpose of citing from the Thesaurus Linguae Aegyptiae, we suggest using the abbreviation TLA.

The form of electronic publication offers a decisive advantage in that it allows for the Thesaurus to be continuously and seamlessly complemented, extended and revised. It is in this sense that the Thesaurus Linguae Aegyptiae is a dynamic publication. And it is precisely for this reason that it is not possible to guarantee constant reproduction of search results over a longer period of time. Hence, it is important to indicate to which version of the Thesaurus Linguae Aegyptiae a particular citation refers to. Although older database versions are no longer accessible on the Internet, these have been archived by the project group Arbeitsstelle Altägyptisches Wörterbuch, so that citations from these versions continue to be verifiable..

Owing to the fact that citations in the Thesaurus Linguae Aegyptiae cannot be looked up directly, it is recommended to cite passages using the references given in the Thesaurus Linguae Aegyptiae. Subsequently, such a citation of a text segment may be followed by the citation of the interpretation found in the Thesaurus Linguae Aegyptiae by indicating "<Name of editor> in: TLA (<Version month/year>).

If you have found the Thesaurus Linguae Aegyptiae to be of help while doing research for a particular project, which we truly hope will be the case, a general citation would be welcome.
