Awesome. I have added the personal pronouns, with redirects from searches with capitals and jenkims.

I have also added pages that redirect from Latin-character Coptic to Coptic; for example searching `ntwten will redirect to Ⲛⲧⲱⲧⲉⲛ.

Finally I created a page for every letter in the index with some basic pronunciation, and how to type the character in Latin Met `n Rem `n <ymi. Pronunciation is still unclear to me so this may need editing.

I am wondering if the link to Coptionary can be added to the main page of the site, as I believe it should be made available to the public and may help us get new members.

Great job, well done.
except the problem of having the entries in Boahiric everything else is really good.

I will change them to Sahidic. As I said in my other post, if there is no contradiction then I will still have searches in Bohairic work.

I would also like to add a few entries into the dictionary to help others... I have some useful rare information from research and would want to add it to the dictionary.
When possible, if needed be, can we add the hieroglyphic origin (when there is one) or would that be unnecessaryor messy looking?

Also do I need to provide an administrator any information for me to add entries?

Hi  Anaksunamun ,
Please go ahead.
You need to login to wikitionary to add entries.
Your login details is the same as your login details for this forum.

You could add an "Origin" section to the word entry and put the hieroglyphic origin there but I am not so sure how will you write hieroglyphic in the wiki

Nofri Anaksunamun.

Please go ahead. I would be interested in the hieroglyphic myself. Please  coraddan origsexton where it seems beat to you, and cite your information if it is not from Crum's dictionary (which I assume your research is not).  Otherwise, don't worry about format, as I will watch your entries and we will figure out something professional-looking eventually.

In reference to the hieroglyphic origin I could use transcription spelling (for example  nfr - good/beautiful  and maybe refer the hieroglyphic spelling to a specific Egyptian Dictionary or website)

So all I must do to sign in to the coptidictionary is use my log-in information from this site?

Yes, I believe that that is all you need to do. Admin will be able to help you if there is some technical problem.

I know there are hieroglyphic unicode characters, which you could either use directly or use to create high-resolution images. I think that the actual hieroglyphic is preferable to any transcription.
