Here are a few more;

nut, sky, granary
heka, observation, "magic"
3b3w, height (heaven), 81'
duat, 3gb, column

I believe there was some "play" in these especially in the vulgar term. While every word had one meaning the same word could appear in multiple categories. Every sentence included a word from each category. For instance the "m3t-wt.t" was the device that caught water at altitude and "mnti-irty" (the falcon that snatches things from mid-air) was the theory associated with it. Each of these words belonged to the scientific category but apparently could be colloquial from specific perspectives. By knowing the names of each of the words it was always apparent how it was used in a sentence. These names could be spelled out if not readily apparent (in its name of...).

Until there is a proper "translation" of the PT such things and the rules of grammar are difficult to discern. It must be retranslated to reflect author intent. At this time they haven't really "circumscribed the meaning" so much as circumcised and castrated it. The literal meaning is fairly close to author intent but otherwise it is most assuredly not reflective of what the author was thinking.

Man fears the pyramid, time fears man.
