The Different Types and Forms
The different types and forms of Hieroglyphics are Hieratic and Demotic, and they were written in symbols known as glyphs. In the text, it states, “Glyphs were separated into two groups, phonograms, which are glyphs that represent sounds, and ideograms, which are glyphs that represent object or ideas.” Unlike our way of writing, the Egyptians wrote from right to left in long lines. Phonograms represented the sounds of single consonants. The Egyptians did not write vowels. These are the different types and forms of hieroglyphics.
