    ??? I would think it would be pronounced the way its spelled.

    For whatever reason (and I know there is one. I just can't remember it : ), our spiritual leader believes that the "tj" sound is the closest phonetic approximation. And as she has a masters in egyptology and has written many papers and done lots of research and likely even asked our gods, I tend not to dispute it.

    I can possibly ask her to explain the reasoning behind this pronunciation if you like?

    I'd like to wait a bit before I do though, as she has been sick recently and is generally swamped enough without me adding to this.

    maybe I can do some research into this. hmmm
    If you would, I have always been puzzled about the discrepancy. Thank you...

I personally feel most comfortable with netjair (but light on the "t" sound). Also, I think names of the Netjer, and various phrases would be interesting to hear. So whatchya think?
      Dk
      I'm interested, have you started this thread already?

      • These links should help explain the "Netjer" spelling, and comon "neh-cher" pronunciation.

        The phenomenon of the "nTr" spelling has to do with the way that hieroglyphs are transliterated. Consider for example that Ma'at is actually transliterated as "ma3t" or that Yinepu ("Anubis") is "inpw."

                        • You'll have to excuse me, I just realized that this is a thread for how HOK does things. Excuse me for having interloped.

                            There are others who aren't in the House who have hung out here before. Don't worry about it.

                            • It is a thread about the HoN/KO way of doing and interpreting things, but its also a placy for non-KO people to come and ask us questions or just make us think about things. (Healthy doubt and inspection is a good thing!) So, really, you haven't interloped; you've used the thread for exactly what it is meant to be used for.
