THE LETTER "I" in Hieroglyphics


Today's hieroglyphic is the letter "I"

Kat: "This is a strange letter. It's not like the others."
Zet: "What do you mean?"
Kat: The symbol for the letter "i" can be used for all the different sounds of "i". It doesn't matter if it's the "inh" in ink, or the very different sounding "aye" in lice.
Zet: (Laughs) "Lice! Nice example!"
Kat: (Rolling her eyes) "Yeah. Thought you'd like that one."
