Etymology 4[edit]

Particle[edit]

D35

proclitic

  1. (Old Egyptian) not; negates any sentence
  2. (Middle and later Egyptian) not; negates a nominal sentence or adjectival sentence of possession (used with js; see Usage Notes below)
  3. no, not any; negates an individual noun
  4. not; negates other individual words
Usage notes[edit]
  • When used alone, nj negates the individual word following it.
  • When negating (nonverbal) nominal sentences and adjectival sentences of possession (which start with the genitival adjective n(j)
    n
    ), this particle is typically followed by the first element of the negated sentence and then the negative particle js. In Middle Egyptian it cannot negate adjectival sentences which do not indicate possession, nor adverbial sentences, which are instead negated by nn.
  • nj combines with a number of other words to form negative particles with more specialised meanings, for which see the next section.
