Tobias B. Paul has studied Egyptology and the archaeology of ancient Sudan, sociology and philosophy of culture, and historical linguistics. He holds an M.A. in Archaeology and Cultural History of Northeast Africa and a B.A. in Cultural Studies. Tobias is mainly interested in Egyptian and Coptic linguistics, focusing on language change, sociolinguistics, morphology, and phonology, and has researched historical questions such as the use of war elephants in ancient Northeast Africa. In the B03 project, he will study register variation in the Egyptian-Coptic language. His dissertation project examines how registers are involved in the processes of language change from Older to Later Egyptian.
