Isolating, Fusional, Agglutinative? I can't find any information on this, or am I just looking in wrong places.
Delodephius wrote:Yes I have, but Wikipedia gives no information about what I'm looking fore. I found an article that only states that Old Egyptian was synthetic, Middle, Late and Demotic were isolating, and Coptic is again synthetic. I just don't know whether that synthetic means agglutinative or fusional, or both in case of one being agglutinative and the other fusional. It only states that Coptic morphology is more complex than that of Old Egyptian, which I don't know how to interpret.
