Hello, I am resurrecting this thread because lately I got interested in Coptic. I think this could be because I am now studying Egyptian Arabic, and well, Coptic is also Egyptian
I studied about 2 years of Ancient Greek in school, so I am able to read in the Greek alphabet. I have taken a look at Coptic alfabet and it’s not very different from Coptic.
So the question is, what about the vocabulary? Do you go directly for a dictionary? Do you make translations of texts like in Latin? Does Coptic vocabulary resembles (looks like
) any other known language apart from the Greek loan words?
What is your experience about it?
