Biliteral Medu Neter glyphs are symbols which represent a specific sequence of two consonants, also two vowels, or combinational of both, in the language. In the written Kemetic language, three types of glyphs existed: those that represented one value (called uniliterals, the alphabetic signs), those that represented two, (called biliteral) and those that represented three, (called triliteral).

In the following list, aleph is transliterated as , ayin as and yodh as ı͗.
