Abstract: By means of the sign known as Gardiner F27, theory on classification in ancient Egyptian written language is juxtaposed with orthography in both hieroglyphic and hieratic writing. Existing theory, currently a hotly debated topic in Egyptological scholarship, is tested and modified by means of source data primarily from the Ramesside period in Egypt. In this way the thesis opens up promising new avenues for future research.
