Mdw Ntr Alphabet (Organized like Mdw Ntr grammars and dictionaries)
Alphabet characters were the basis for hieroglyphic writings. The basic hieroglyph characters are refered to as the ALPHABET. They 'spell out' names or anything which can't be represented by other characters. The alphabet characters are read as the sound of the object they represented.
The Hieroglyphic Alphabet
In english, words are often abbreviated by leaving out vowels.
mtn = mountain
blvd = boulevard
When these abbreviations are read aloud, they are spoken using vowels.

(adjust)You may notice that some hieroglyphs are vowel sounds, these are considered weak consonants and are used when a word begins with a vowel or where it might be confusing without them, like in a name.
