Meaning of the word ⲧⲉⲡⲗⲁⲛⲏ
« on: 17 April , 2020, 10:49:19 PM »
Hello! I'm new at this forum. I just have one single task for now. I'd want to figure out the word ⲧⲉⲡⲗⲁⲛⲏ, in particular, I need to know what means the prefix ⲧⲉ- and all the meanings of the word ⲡⲗⲁⲛⲏ. I know that the most common meaning of "ⲡⲗⲁⲛⲏ" is "error", but, as I understand, it also can mean "deception" or "deceit", and, it seems, "deviation".
Thanks in advance!

ⲛⲟϥⲣⲓ Yulia,

ⲛⲁⲛⲉ ⲡⲉϫⲓⲛⲓ :). ⲧⲉ-/ⲧ- seems like the feminine singular definite article in the Sahidic dialect (ϯ in Bohairic). The word ⲡⲗⲁⲛⲏ looks Greek to me, looking it up the dictionary [1] gives the same meanings you mentioned.

ⲟⲩϫⲁⲓ,
ⲡⲓⲙⲟⲩⲓ
