The sounds of Old Bohairic – a short phonological outline

Szelog, Michael (2004). The sounds of Old Bohairic – a short phonological outline.

This work is the result of a personal study carried out by Mike Szelog, who is an active member of the Remenkimi Yahoo Group. His study focusses in particular on the phonemic inventory of the Old Bohairic (OB) pronunciation in opposition to the Graeco-Bohairic (GB) pronunciation, which is most widely used in the liturgical worship of the Coptic Orthodox Church. The approach he has taken is to make the conclusions of the study accessible to lay people by avoiding unnecessary technical language and explaining technical terms where they do occur.

Also of interest is a short document produced by Mike Szelog giving the Lord’s Prayer in Bohairic, Sahidic and Fayumic along which its dialectic pronunciation at different times.

    • Thanks for your words of encouragement Christopher. I’m glad you’ve found the work useful. Of course, there are many other resources yet to be studied and made available to a wider readership. All the best, Ambrose.
