What are the native words for "Bohairic" and "Sahidic"?


Coptic Advocate 3:
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,


Please refer to the ⲛⲓϫⲓⲛⲥⲁϫⲓ section in the following link:

That looks really good! How long have people been preparing Wiki pages in Coptic?
