Note: In Middle Egyptian, this sign is pronounced "s." In the earlier Old Egyptian, it was probably pronounced closer to "z." Thus, in Middle Egyptian, it is transliterated s, and in Old Egyptian, it is transliterated z. Be aware that some Egyptian dictionaries distinguish between the two signs, with z coming before s (sometimes written as ś).
Another second sign pronouncd "s," in Middle Egyptian is called the tall-s.
For memorizing the order of the alphabet, include it with the previous "s," keeping in mind the two ways of writing this letter.
