Curse words
« on: 06 August , 2007, 04:44:15 am »
I was just wondering if anyone out there knew any curse word or phrases. I've just started learning coptic, and whenever I start out learning a new language I like to learn the works the most lessons won't teach you.
Thanks.

the Coptic language is a dead language
only used for prayers in the Coptic church
almost all books written in Coptic are related to religious in a way or another (Christianity, gnostic or magic)

So as you may have guessed already those books doesn't include curses (in the way you mean)
expect of course words like stupid, ugly, ... (which you can find them easily in any dictionary)

sorry if that wasn't very helpful to you

I figured that would be the case. I just know with latin the know some curse word that were used. But latin was far more widespread.
Well, thank you anyway.

Maybe I'll invent my own...

I wish you good luck with your Coptic study
if you got any Coptic related resources (not necessarily curses), we will be very happy if you share it with us
also if you found something in Coptic you want to talk about you can post in the general section

Good Luck
