Eventual cleanup[edit]

Our coverage of hieroglyphs has been completely wrecked by an over-enthusiastic editor with limited knowledge on the matter.

The aim of the cleanup project should be something like List of cuneiform signs, i.e. a well-referenced lookup table translating between existing academic conventions. The Unicode block will be a good starting point, as they essentially did exactly the same work already. --dab (𒁳) 11:08, 19 November 2017 (UTC)

  • I tried to incorporate the information in the tables. Lots of cleanup work still needed. The information is basically duplicated in the Gardiner list sub-pages and in the "alphabetic by English description" pages, which I have made a subpage to this one, Talk:List of Egyptian hieroglyphs/workpage. I think most information is just duplicate, but of course it may be worthwhile to plod through it all. --dab (𒁳) 15:29, 19 November 2017 (UTC)
