Do we know today what did Ancient Egyptian sound like?

Answer:

Yes, we do have a good idea of what Ancient Egyptian sounded like both due to written records and the fact that Coptic, a direct linguistic descendant of the language, is still spoken today. Coptic is largely used in Egyptian Orthodox Churches and is still seen as a living language due to it having a small number of native speakers. Due to this it is easy to gain a strong idea of what Ancient Egyptian sounded like.
