Hi Canis Majoris:

< I hope that Egyptians can reclaim their native language. >

I hope so, too. You provided a very good summary of revival of Classical languages and modern pronunciations.

< Greco-Bohairic is most useful for continuation of the Orthodox Church's pronunciation of liturgy. Mostly priests, Coptic Christians, and clergy would learn this pronunciation. >

I completely agree. Coptic language is in danger of being used less and less in the liturgy. It would be very useful to teach congregations how to follow prayers in Greek and Bohairic without confusing them with the AB pronunciation. Teaching people to converse in Bohairic should be of secondary importance.
