Usage notes[edit]

This demonstrative was originally a determiner but could later be used alone, like a pronoun. When used as a determiner it follows or precedes the noun it describes.

In Old Egyptian it forms a contrastive pair with the demonstrative jpn, in which jpf is distal.

By Middle Egyptian it is obsolete.
