This is a perfect example of why Cladking's method is flawed. He will say you cannot parse but there is no need to parse.
He will say you can derive the context from Mercer's English translation and as Lee points out Cladking's context is flawed.
All you have to do is look at the actual Hieroglyphic text and I promise that all of you regardless of whether you've laid eyes upon one hieroglyph will immediately see the problem and have a good laugh, for all including Sethe, Mercer, Cladking, and even Jim Allen missed this one.
The word jt with determinative snake (usually phonetic "f") means father. The jtw are the forefathers. The word wr means great. This has nothing whatsoever to do with "saw". So where does this idea come from? Well for starters the word pronounced jyt which sounds like jt means knife and so the knife symbol is both a logogram and a phonogram. That is the first important piece of information. Gardiner T30 is placed here after jtf3 and before wr. So what is the context represented by T30? A shrine....a monument made to the memmory of the forefathers.
Second, in the original text first used by Teti and all which follow the word is determined by the symbol which I know at least Lee knows well...the Pr-wr shrine. I strongly encourage all of you to verify what I am saying for yourselves to let this be a lesson "thou shall not forget"...that you have to check original sources and don't let academics or heretics alike ideologically influence your own better judgement.
So why did Sethe think this is a" Saw Palace"? Look at it and have a good laugh.
