Best Answer

Ikhet is a modern way of pronouncing the word written with hieroglyphs that spell Axt (where the A is a consonant sound not found in English). The word means horizon, or the tomb of a king.

The expression wDA r Axt (go to the horizon) is often used in funerary texts to mean "die". Axtyw or horizon-dwellers meant the dead.

We can never know how ancient Egyptian words were really said because hieroglyphs do not record any of the vowel sounds.
