Hi all

Im a newbie who just joined today.
Im currently studying Egyptology and Hieroglphics is one of my subjects
this semester. I have a question regarding Plurals which im hoping someone might help.

Regarding the uniliteral W11 is the pot holder and represents 'g' . Im wondering aside from sound whether it has any other meaning as a determinative? Ive encountered a line which Im having trouble
transliterating. If there is a wicker basket V30 (Nb) plus 3 potholders. does this simply convert the nb to a plural?
ie translated as lords?

thanks
JoJo

According to J.Allen Middle Egyptian (p.446) W11 is a variant of W12; this one is a determinative in nst "seat".
Regarding the second question, I do not think so. I believe 3 potholders is the plural of a single one.

Should you be looking for tools, do a search on Jsesh, Glyph Tutor, Hierowords, flashglyph, Hieroglyph, Beinlich.
