Nobody here (well, maybe Satsemyt at first XD Not sure on that one!) was trying to say that anybody else is wrong.


I must admit that I used the word "wrong" in my first post ...
With that I meant purely transliteration wise (and I do hope I offended no one :) ) assuming that how people wrote it was also how they transliterated it.

I also think that "wrong" is not such a bad word to use in a discussion :) On transliteration there is a scientific concensus, so if people do it differently, it actually is wrong. And in that case wrong is not meant judgemental but purely a fact.
Pornounciation however is not that clear, as this thread has showed once again, so here no one really is wrong, just of a different opinion, which makes for fun and interesting conversation :)

The first question of this thread however was a different one, which I also lost from sight (sorry for that).

Can you give me some pointers on how to draw closer to Yinepu?

When you wish to draw closer to someone the first step (at least that is what I think) is to learn more about him or her... Who is/was he or she, what is written about him or her, what are his or her titles, etc etc.
So perhaps a good start is to read all you can read about him. Start a bit of your own scientific research on him so to say :)

And of course lighting a candle in front of his statue also never hurts :)

It's a line crossing thing. You were talking about posting academic references and then went on straight away to say especially if one is saying things are wrong. Since the former seemed to be about Bezen, the latter part was really confusing and sounded like it must be referencing her as well.


Not at all what happened. But, in any case, I do not feel it appropriate to hash out a he-said, she-said game when it's clearly written.

C'est la vie, eh?

I apologize, then, for misunderstanding your meaning. A thousand apologies, even! :)

I think the misunderstanding arises in the fact that we write Yinepu as a transliteration of the sound Hemet believes the best approximation and not a transliteration in the straight 1 = A sense. So, in that way, our transliteration is both wrong and right! :)

Em hotep,

I'm very sorry.

Having re-read the entire thread and my own posts, an apology is in order.

I was trying to seem 'cool' and 'objective' but I can tell now that I'm just coming off as a jerk; I'm very sorry for that. It happens often and it's a flaw in my particular style of writing (and talking, so I should really have learned by now). I really only have one setting: goofy and when I try to be serious... well, this is the result! :(

Very sorry if I've put anyone off. Really didn't mean it!

Ask anyone who has met me IRL, I'm not mean.
