In Egyptian Hieroglyphics, i always thought wwwwwwwwwwwww was M
but the following and 2 other sources says that
wwwwwwwwwww (horizontal Zig-Zag) is N
Could someone help ? HH
There is little doubt that wwwwwwwwwww (horizontal Zig-Zag) is N, not m.
You may confuse Egyptian n with Semitic mâ "water".
Thank you! Jp [mi] (Mizu) also tends to be Water.
Korean surname [Ma] is 馬, 麻

Champollion agrees with you, and transliterates it as m. However, a lot
of water has passed under the bridge since he wrote his Grammaire
égyptienne, and modern Egyptologists may take a different view. <<<
in this book i really like [Lost Languages], on p.67 is
a reproduction (photo) of Champollion's first decipherment.
in the table (chart), www wwww www is N
Tut - Ankh - Amon
Borrowed from Egyptian twt-ꜥnḫ-jmn (literally “Living Image of Amun”)
where Twt === image
Ankh == Living, LifeLoading Image...
2+1 things catch my attention. in [ Tut - Ankh - Amon ]
1. T-Ankh (Tank) -- did Joyce link this with Tunc ?
2. Amun ( i - Mn - N )
in (ancient) Greek , Mn was common ?
i can't even pronounce it.
3. [ Tut - Ankh - Amon ] sounds like a combination of
Tu t'en (vas) -- Come-on
