ϯϣⲉⲡ̀ϩⲙⲟⲧ ̀ⲛⲧⲟⲧⲕ ⲉⲙⲙⲁϣⲟ ⲡⲓⲙⲟⲩⲓ

It's either ⲡⲁⲣⲁⲛ ⲡⲉ ⲧⲓⲙⲟⲑⲉⲟⲥ (literally means "my name is ⲧⲓⲙⲟⲑⲉⲟⲥ") or ⲁⲛⲟⲕ ⲡⲉ ⲧⲓⲙⲟⲑⲉⲟⲥ (literally means "I'm ⲧⲓⲙⲟⲑⲉⲟⲥ").
I think I've seen this construction before, where the possessive article is emphasised by the pronoun. It might be in the Midnight Praises, something like ⲧⲁⲡⲣⲟⲥⲉⲩⲭⲏ ⲁⲛⲟⲕ.

ⲛ̀ is turned into ⲙ̀ when followed by ⲙ, ⲃ, ⲡ, ⲫ, or ⲯ. So it should be ⲙ̀ⲙⲏⲧ and not ⲛ̀ⲙⲏⲧ.
Of course! Rookie error.

ⲕⲁϯ ⲉⲣⲟϥ should be ⲕⲁϯ ⲉⲣⲟⲥ because it refers to a feminine word (ϯⲙⲉⲧⲣⲉⲙ̀ⲛⲭⲏⲙⲓ).
Yes, yet again I should've known that.

In Coptic, ⲕⲁϯ is verb "to understand", while ϭⲓⲥⲃⲱ is verb "to learn" from ϭⲓ "to take" and ⲥⲃⲱ "teaching" (i.e. to receive education).
ϬⲒⲤⲂⲰ  of course! I knew ⲕⲁϯ was to understand but that was the closest I could get.
Thankyou so much for your feedback

ⲁⲛⲟⲕ ⲟⲩⲣⲉⲙaustralia, ⲁⲗⲗⲁ ⲧⲁⲙⲉⲧⲓⲱⲧ ⲧⲏⲣϥ ϩⲁⲛⲣⲉⲙ̀ⲛⲭⲏⲙⲓ ⲛⲉ.

ⲟⲩϫⲁⲓ ϧⲉⲛ ⲡϭⲟⲓⲥ,
