I would like to come up with a guide to transcribe hieroglyphs in books into Unicode. How do I do that? First is Gardiner's list. But I would assume you simply read the hieroglyphs left to right, but it doesn't seem so in an example such as the following.
It seems that you read recursively, from left to right, top to bottom. So it would be:
- first square: Z1
- second square: D21 Z1
- third square: N35 (ignoring the brackets for some reason)
- fourth square: O1, D21, X1
- fifth square: G4/G17
- sixth square: ? Z1
- seventh square: G4/G17
- eighth square? how to translate this one?
Basically wondering where I learn how to do this properly, or how to do this properly.
