The present paper explores the linguistic complexity of Seti I’s Kanais Inscription through the perspective of linguistic dissimilation. The analysis focuses on the different grammatical realizations of future relative constructions (sDm.tj=fj, ntjj r sDm, ntjj tw=j/sw r sDm, and ntjj jw=f r sDm). I argue that the unusually high degree of linguistic dissimilation of future relative constructions can be interpreted as a form of linguistic inclusiveness. In the second half of the paper, further examples of linguistic dissimilation are discussed with regard to the various causal conjunctions (Hr-ntjj, p#-wn, mj, and Xr) and the different vetitive constructions (s#w sDm=f, s#w tw=j/sw r sDm, and m-jr sDm) in the text.
