What is and what is not. A very brief note on relative adjectives and negations in Earlier Egyptian

Abstract [en]

The various constructions of the Earlier Egyptian relative adjectives nt- and the negative iwt- suggest that the latter but not the former can express existential meaning. However, it is argued that this meaning is not to be generalised across the different uses of iwt- and that an exactly analogous situation holds also for nn, often viewed as a universally 'predicative' negation.
