Greek loan words in Coptic

In 1955 WA Girgis (later Bishop Gregorius) presented a thesis entitled Greek words in Coptic usage to the University of Manchester for a PhD. He later published his work in a series of eight articles in the Bulletin de la Société d’archéologie copte (BSAC) named Greek loan words in Coptic from 1964-2001. The first article in the series (BSAC 17) is a general introduction, but the following three (BSAC 18-20) deal with what Greek loan words, and in particular their spelling in Coptic, can tell us about Coptic phonology. The article published in BASC 18 deals with stressed and unstressed Coptic vowels, BSAC 19 deals broadly with Coptic consanants, and BASC 20 deals with aspiration.
