Egyptian

Etymology 1

Often suggested to be cognate to Hebrew ?(b?-), Arabic (bi-); however, more recent scholarship disputes this on phonological grounds, as Egyptian m is not held to regularly correspond with Semitic *b by either the traditional school of Egyptian comparison or the neuere Komparatistik school.

Pronunciation

Preposition

m
  1. in
  2. (of time) in, for, during
  3. (with certain verbs of motion) into
  4. (with most verbs of motion) from within, out of, from
  5. (of material) made of, consisting of
  6. (of contents, e.g. of a group) consisting of, comprising
  7. by means of
  8. in a state of
  9. in the capacity of, in the role of, as, being
  10. together with, along with
  11. (with following infinitive) forms the periphrastic imperfective of a verb
Usage notes

This preposition is often used with definition 9 to indicate temporary identity, so, for example, z m ?hw ("the man is a poor man") implies that this a temporary, rather than an eternal or generally true, state. Egyptian generally has an expansive view of what counts as a temporary identity compared to English.

Inflection
Alternative forms

When the object of the preposition is an attached suffix pronoun, the adverbial form jm is used instead.

Derived terms

Etymology 2

Possibly originally a verb form, an imperative meaning 'see'.

Particle

mD38

 proclitic

  1. (chiefly Old and Middle Egyptian, with a suffix pronoun) behold, lo, look
    Synonym: ptr (Late Egyptian)
  2. (without a suffix pronoun) whether, although
Usage notes

This particle must introduce a sentence. In Middle Egyptian, it is usually followed by an attached second-person suffix pronoun, such as .k, .?, .?nj, or .?n, indicating the person being addressed; after this comes the subject, in the form of a nominal subject, a demonstrative pronoun, or a dependent pronoun. In Old Egyptian, a dependent pronoun could be used instead of a suffix pronoun, reflecting the word's origins as an imperative.
