Like you hide yours behind 3-year-olds in a kindergarten⸮

Nope.

Loprieno says of Ancient Egyptian that “its morphological repertoire differs to a great extent from that of Semitic and of other Afroasiatic languages”. This may in part explain his treating it as sui generis.

The book is full of detail and to understand it takes nontrivial knowledge of (a) linguistics and (b) Egyptology. I doubt you understand what I’ve just quoted.
