Layout codes[edit | edit source]

Layout codes are characters that:

  • Separate hieroglyphs
  • Indicate the organization of the hieroglyphs in space (that is, the position of hieroglyphs in a block)

Example: {{#tag:hiero|a-p:t-q}} gives

a p
t
q

General text layout codes[edit | edit source]

(-) Inline separator[edit | edit source]

The official hieroglyph separator is the hyphen character ("-", also called block separator) but you are also allowed to use a space because it is a widespread practice.

Examples[edit | edit source]
correct A1-B1
A1 B1
allowed A1 B1
A1 B1
incorrect A1B1
A1B1

(!) Forced line break[edit | edit source]

To make a new line of text, use the exclamation character ("!"). Normally, the "end-of-line" must be surrounded by separators (as -!-), but space or nothing are also allowed.

Examples[edit | edit source]
correct A1-B1-!-C1-D1
A1 B1
C1 D1
allowed A1-B1 ! C1-D1
A1 B1
C1 D1
A1-B1 !C1-D1
A1 B1
C1 D1
allowed
although apparently
not fully functional
A1-B1!C1-D1
A1 B1
C1 D1
A1-B1! C1-D1
A1 B1
C1 D1

Blanks[edit | edit source]

A dot (".") represents a half-group blank; two dots ("..") represent a one-group blank.[1]

Examples[edit | edit source]
no blank A1-B1
A1 B1
half-group blank A1-.-B1
A1
 
B1
one-group blank A1-..-B1
A1
 
B1

Block composition codes[edit | edit source]

(:) Superposition[edit | edit source]

To superpose hieroglyphs, use the colon character (":") instead of the hyphen.

Examples[edit | edit source]
normal layout p-t
p t
superposed p:t
p
t
superposed in the middle of a line a-p:t-q
a p
t
q

(*) Juxtaposition[edit | edit source]

To juxtapose hieroglyphs, use the asterisk character ("*"). Juxtaposing hieroglyphs is only relevant when they are part of a block which is superposed.

Examples[edit | edit source]
normal layout p-t
p t
allowed
(same as normal layout)
p*t
p t
juxtaposed in rows
of a superposition
p*t:a
p t
a
p*p*p:t*t*t
p p p
t t t

Hieroglyphs[edit | edit source]

There are two ways of encoding hieroglyphs:

  • using Gardiner's sign list code (e.g. A12)
  • with the more frequent phonemes (e.g. xA)

Phonemes[edit | edit source]

They are coded with codes of one or two letters.

See Extension:WikiHiero/phonemes.

Gardiner's sign list[edit | edit source]

A hieroglyph is encoded by:

  • a letter that represents the category;
  • a number that represents rank within the category.

Example: {{#tag:hiero|A1}} gives

A1
