Usage notes

Though a noun in Egyptian, ky frequently describes another noun, standing before it in apposition, and it is therefore often best translated into English as a determiner.

ky is an old dual noun, but its ‘dual’ forms are used with singulars when in apposition.

Inflection

By the end of Old Egyptian, the feminine plural fell out of use and the masculine plural became a general plural.
