Usage notes[edit]

This demonstrative can be used alone, as a pronoun. It is used as a demonstrative for plural nouns, in which case it precedes the noun, with the genitival adjective n in between, e.g. "these feet" is nn n rdw (literally "this of feet").

It forms a contrastive pair with the demonstrative pronoun nf, in which nn is proximal.

There is an alternate hieroglyphic writing:

M22 M22
n
nn
