Need for the weekdays in Coptic
« on: 24 January , 2013, 06:22:41 am »
Hello,
I need for the names of the weekdays in Coptic for my calendar.
I just found that Monday is "Ⲁⲃⲓⲧ" (Abit).
What about others 6 days: Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Sunday and Saturday,
please?

simply you will add - ⲡⲓ - meaning - the - to numbers from one to seven to get the names of the weekdays
ⲡⲓⲟⲩⲁⲓ . means sunday . and so on
also ⲥⲁⲃⲃⲁⲧⲟⲛ  means saturday
ⲕⲩⲣⲓⲁⲕⲏ (greek origen) for sunday meaning the day of the lord
this what I know..

Like Emad said the days of the week are
ⲡⲓⲟⲩⲁⲓ ⲡⲓⲥⲁⲛⲩ ⲡⲓϣⲟⲙⲟⲧ ⲡⲓϥⲧⲱⲟⲩ ⲡⲓⲧⲓⲟⲩ ⲡⲓⲥⲟⲩ ⲡⲓϣⲁϣϥ
About Ⲁⲃⲓⲧ i am not sure if we know the equivalent words for the other week days

Also as emad mentioned you can use the greek words
ⲕⲩⲣⲓⲁⲕⲏ and ⲥⲁⲃⲃⲁⲧⲟⲛ instead of ⲡⲓⲟⲩⲁⲓ and ⲡⲓϣⲁϣϥ
