What are the native words for "Bohairic" and "Sahidic"?
« on: 11 August , 2023, 02:14:01 PM »
Ⲛⲟϥⲣⲓ ⲛⲁϣⲫⲏⲣ!
I was just wondering how you would ask someone what dialect they speak in Coptic. I asked ChatGPT, because it wasn't included in Sameh's book and I can't remember finding it in Lambdin, and it said ⲉⲥⲏⲙⲉ for bohairic, and ⲥⲉⲕⲉⲥⲉⲙⲉⲥ for sahidic ??? I don't know if it's making up random words, or it found an online dictionary that had words for the dialects...I'm definitely gonna think twice before trusting Mr. GPT :)
Could it even be that these words never survived through long enough to be included in a dictionary? I've read that the dialects were so starkly different that people knew which was which immediately, so maybe the words fell out of use?

Keen to learn more,
ⲧⲓⲙⲟⲧⲏⲉⲟⲥ
