Hieroglyphic Determinatives

Some Egyptian phrases and expressions were so common that they had their own hieroglyphs.

Sometimes an extra symbol was used to better explain the word these were known as "determinatives".

If you click one of the links to the bottom you will be taken to a page with the relevant symbol and its equivelant English meaning. I think of these symbols as being nouns and adverbs.
