Pronoun[edit]

tW

  2. (Late Egyptian, attached to a stative verb form) the general (unmarked) stative ending, used with all genders and numbers

Usage notes[edit]

By the end of the 20th Dynasty, all stative endings were levelled to this single form, .tw, or (interchangeably) simply not written at all. After that time all the written forms of the traditional stative endings no longer represented separate morphemes in the spoken language but were mere allographs of .tw or ∅.
