Pronoun[edit]

s t

 c pl, f sg 3. enclitic (‘dependent’) pronoun

  1. she, her, it, they, them; by Middle Egyptian often, but not exclusively, used for inanimate objects (see usage notes)
Usage notes[edit]

This form of pronoun is an enclitic that must directly follow the word it modifies. Its meaning depends on its context:

  • When it follows a verb, it indicates the object of the verb.
  • In the second and third person when it follows an adjective, it forms the subject of an adjectival sentence.
  • When it follows a relative adjective, such as ntj, ntt, or jsṯ, it indicates the subject of the relative clause (usually only in the first person singular and third person common).
  • When it follows an imperative, it indicates the object of the verb.
  • When it follows a particle like mj.k, it indicates the subject of the clause.
  • When attached to a preposition, it indicates the object of the preposition.
