г and б
« on: 12 May , 2020, 06:24:13 PM »
The letter “ⲅ” is used only in Greek loanwords. Does the sound “g” occur in native Coptic words?

The other question I have is regarding “ϭ.” In which dialect is this letter more commonly used? I know that in Maher’s system it is pronounced like “ϣ.” But why would there be 2 letters with similar pronunciation?

Thank you.
