ⲡⲓⲥⲙⲟⲧ `ⲛⲣⲉⲙⲛⲭⲏⲙⲓ[edit source]
I don't think it is a good idea to move a page without any discussions when there is not an obvious grammatical or spelling error which would justify an immediate change.
I think it has been unwritten law here that words with a Greek etymology are written according to their Greek orthography. Instead, the user tried to wipe out every single ⲓⲛⲇⲟⲛⲏⲥⲓⲁ.
The same applies for the exchange of ⲓⲟⲣⲇⲁⲛⲓⲁ with ⲓⲟⲣⲧⲁⲛⲓⲁ.
- I can live with both spellings, although the problem with the more coptiziced variant is that we don't know where we should stop. ⲓⲛⲧⲟⲛⲏⲥⲓⲁ would be equally possible, and from what we know from Greek words in Coptic, ⲓⲛⲧⲟⲛⲏⲥⲓⲁ could maybe even more common than all other forms. How should we write words like "demon"? ⲇⲁⲓⲙⲱⲛ or ⲧⲉⲙⲱⲛ, both forms are attested. Or ⲇⲉⲙⲱⲛ or ⲧⲁⲓⲙⲱⲛ?
- What is a bigger problem is that we did not have a discussion first. Ϯⲙⲉⲗⲗⲓⲥⲏⲧ (talk) 17:11, 11 January 2018 (UTC)
I'm clearly in favor of ⲓⲛⲇⲟⲛⲏⲥⲓⲁ. Even if there is a majority against it (which i dont see here), why did ⲡⲓⲙⲟⲩⲓ exchange all spellings with his prefered one? Indonesia is clearly a Greek word and I dont see why it cant be reflected in Coptic. بطرس مرقس (talk) 01:16, 12 January 2018 (UTC)
