Chapter Summary

This chapter discusses the three Aramaic-Demotic/Hieratic equivalent legal formulae representing a new addition to the Aramaic-Demotic legal parallels listed by Porten and Ritner. The chapter explains each of the three Aramaic-Demotic equivalents providing the relevant Egyptian parallels and then establishing three different levels of comparison: The Abstract Concept: this can be concretely expressed in more than one legal term; The Legal Term: the basic concrete unit, which refers merely to words with legal meaning or nuances; and Legal Formulae: a sentence incorporating the legal term with a specific legal function.

Keywords:Aramaic-Demotic equivalents; Egyptian documents; legal formulae; legal term
