Note:

- Best viewed with transliteration font available at Lingua Aegyptia

(True Type Font Transliteration from the Centre For Computer-aided Egyptological Research).


- In order to be able to display the vocabulary the mouse must be over the word without click. The vocabulary first displays word’s “official” writing. The last radical of 3e infirmae verbs is written j. The vocabulary is not intended to replace any already published translation, but to give the main meanings of the words.


- The vocabulary displayed is partly built on the book of Raymond O. FAULKNER, A Concise Dictionary of Middle Egyptian, Oxford, 1962. References to this major contribution to Egyptology are throughout the vocabulary in brackets with the mention of the page (i.e. [F 40] refers to page 40 of the Dictionary).


- The transliteration gives the first entry usually found in hieroglyphic dictionaries: for instance imAxy will be written imAxw


- Royal and private names are written all with hyphens for technical reasons. Here is a list (in latin alphabetical order) of private names with their variants (in brakets, the spelling; in parentheses, the entry in Ranke, Personennamen)


- For addenda and corrigenda about Ramesses II' sons see Marjorie Fisher, The sons of Ramesses II, 2 vol., Wiesbaden, 2001

- Specials thanks are given to the Griffith Institute for the permission to use Faulkner's Dictionary.
