ϯϩⲛⲟⲩⲛⲉⲧⲙⲉ ⲧⲉ ⲫⲁⲣⲓⲥ is not a "fixed typo and grammar" as ⲧⲉ is only used when both words would be feminine (and even then, you can use ⲡⲉ). ⲫⲁⲣⲓⲥ is not feminine. I don't revert it now, though, because we should do that when we add some content to the article. Having hundreds of entries in the page history is ridiculous if you haven't added a lot of content. بطرس مرقس (talk) 18:27, 12 November 2017 (UTC)

ⲫⲉⲣⲉⲛⲧⲁ[edit]

Where does ϥⲣⲁⲛⲥⲁ comes from? Scala Magna has ⲟⲩⲫⲉⲣⲉⲛⲧⲏⲥ for "French", shouldn't we use ⲫⲉⲣⲉⲛⲧⲁ for "France"? ⲥⲉⲣⲕⲓ (talk) 12:44, 17 May 2019 (UTC)

ϥⲣⲁⲛⲥⲁ is the word Copts use today for France. It probably comes from the Arabic term, which in turn is from a Medieval European language. I would not use ⲫⲉⲣⲉⲛⲧⲁ. بطرس مرقس (talk) 00:55, 22 May 2019 (UTC)
