PronunciationEdit

PrepositionEdit

 
  1. in
  2. (of time) in, for, during
  3. (with verbs of motion) into
  4. (with verbs of motion) from within
  5. (of material) made of
  6. by means of
  7. in the state of, in the role of, as, is
  8. (with following infinitive) forms the periphrastic imperfective of a verb
Usage notesEdit

This preposition is often used with the last definition here to indicate temporary identity, so, for example, z m ꜣhw (“the man is a poor man”) implies that this a temporary, rather than an eternal, state. Egyptian generally has an expansive view of what counts as a temporary identity compared to English.

Derived termsEdit

Etymology 2Edit

Possibly originally a verb form, an imperative meaning ‘see’.

ParticleEdit

   

proclitic

  1. (with a suffix pronoun) behold, lo, look
  2. (without a suffix pronoun) whether, although
Usage notesEdit

This particle must introduce a sentence. In Middle Egyptian, it is usually followed by an attached second-person suffix pronoun, such as .k, .ṯ, .ṯnj, or .ṯn, indicating the person being addressed; after this comes the subject, in the form of a nominal subject, a demonstrative pronoun, or a dependent pronoun. In Old Egyptian, a dependent pronoun could be used instead of a suffix pronoun, reflecting the word’s origins as an imperative.
