Coptic is the language of the Ancient Egyptians written in Greek letters (with some additions) and though it is no longer spoken it is still the liturgical language of the Coptic Christians of Egypt. It is thus of great interest to those learning ancient Egyptian as well as those who want to study one of the earliest Christian traditions. This well-known grammar, first published in 1977 and revised in 1983, does not pretend to be an exhaustive study of the Coptic language, but aims to provide an introduction to the basic structure of Coptic Grammar as succinctly as possible; the dialect chosen for this task being Sahidic, the principle literary tongue.
