Return to Contributors

The UEE uses American spelling (see the UEE style sheet). For Egyptian terms and names (ancient and modern) the preferred spelling is listed here. The most common alternatives are indicated, but only the preferred spelling will be used in the articles. This list is in development and will be gradually expanded. For key terms and names contributors are requested to include, in addition to the English spelling, the hieroglyphic spelling (including variants), and transcription.

A --- B --- C --- D --- E --- F --- G --- H --- I --- J --- K --- L --- M --- N --- O --- P --- Q --- R --- S --- T --- U --- V --- W --- X --- Y --- Z
