How to read the notes

Dt. means “determinative for”; id. means “ideogram for”; ph. means “phonogram for”. A semicolon separates different uses. An English word in bold after dt. means a category of words that the sign is a determinative for. Di. means “determinative for these words and ideogram for them as well.” var. means “variant of.”

The “U+” number at the end of each entry is its Unicode code.
