Words We Use About Egypt - Etymology

allenaAllena on 11/29/2007

WordsWeUseAboutEgyptEtymology Photo This quiz asks for the etymology of the words we use to describe the Egyptian area.

Egypt was conquered by many races. Their culture is the sum of Phoenicians, Assyrians, Persians, Greeks, Romans, Byzantines, Ottomans and of course the British Empire. This quiz asks you to know the derivation or meaning of the English word we take for granted.

For example: Viaduct is what? A) British word for nose, B) Phoenician word for artery or c)Latin word for water pipe? If you took the pipe (hooka) you are ready for Egypt.

I have always seen it spelled "anubis", but could be
contextual/alternative spelling? Nice quiz, two of my favorite
things, Egypt and etymology!!!!
