Hello. For the added country names, I want to mention them in a section about the Etymology of the countries. However, I am reluctant to use them as the lemma of the page, because it seems that both names are "hypercorrect" or just questionable, respectively. For instance, ϩⲩⲧⲁⲗⲓⲁ is because of the frequent change of ⲩ and ⲓ in Greek words, and the ϩ is also ambiguous. In Bohairic, it is usually omitted, i.e. ⲓⲥⲧⲟⲣⲓⲁ instead of Sahidic ϩⲓⲥⲧⲟⲣⲓⲁ, when it is at the beginning of a word and he first syllable is not stressed. See also ⲣⲱⲙⲏ instead of ϩⲣⲱⲙⲏ. I personally don't like this feature of Bohairic, but I can't change it.

As far as ⲧⲟⲥⲡⲁⲛⲓⲁ is concerned, it is even weirder. It is probably just from [ⲡⲓ]ⲑⲟ ⲓⲥⲡⲁⲛⲓⲁ '[the] land Spain' (again, btw, ϩⲓⲥⲡⲁⲛⲓⲁ would be non-Bohairic). Any other explanations would require that the author knew even less about Coptic then I already suspect. ⲁϩⲙⲉⲧ (talk) 13:42, 12 December 2017 (UTC)

Hello! Yeah, you're right, i was confused about both ϩ and ⲩ in Italy's name and this weird transition with ⲧⲟⲥⲡⲁⲛⲓⲁ as well. Should've discussed on a talk page first, my fault.
Also, thank you for the information on Bohairic dialect, which as you could see, i lack (hope you're not getting mad correcting my edits in Sahidic-Bohairic-Subrussian Coptic!).
As for the edit itself, my point was that a 14th century book from maybe one of the last native Coptic speakers could provide a true, authentic names for towns/countries even though they may be corrupted. But i guess the whole mess with dialects in his book is because Coptic was far less standardized language than it is today.

No problem, I really appreciate your contributions. After a long time, it seems we finally have a continuous amount of contributors to the Coptic wikipedia. Thank you ⲁϩⲙⲉⲧ (talk) 16:32, 12 December 2017 (UTC)

ϩⲁⲛⲣⲉⲛϯⲙⲓ `ⲙⲙⲉⲧⲣⲉⲙⲛⲭⲏⲙⲓ[edit]

Maybe it's interesting for you. This article of Gundacker contains some precise reconstructions of Egyptian toponyms (from (very) Old Egyptian to Coptic), which makes it even possible to deduce some Coptic forms. The article is full with valuable information. We should use the reconstructions if we ever need Coptic names for the places which are mentioned in the article. ⲁϩⲙⲉⲧ (talk) 14:33, 29 August 2019 (UTC) ⲁϩⲙⲉⲧ (talk) 14:33, 29 August 2019 (UTC)

Very interesting, thank you a lotǃ It can also lead to some interesting conclusions about modern Egyptian toponymy. ⲥⲉⲣⲕⲓ (talk) 12:57, 1 September 2019 (UTC)

Hey ! I am currently learning Coptic and also looking for vocabulary list for a conlang (Bohairic Coptic based with significant Middle Egyptian vocabulary especially in formal context) project I am doing. Can you please help me in it ? CaptainMeowmori (talk) 09:43, 1 January 2020 (UTC)
