Re-Examining Spelling and Pronunciation in Coptic

I am grateful to David Mihalyfy for sending me a copy of his recent article, and I want to draw it to the attention of readers who have an interest in the Coptic language.

The full title of the article is “RE-EXAMINING SPELLING AND PRONUNCIATION IN COPTIC: A Case For The Intervocalic And Post-Nasal Allophonic Voicing Of Obstruents.”

In essence, the argument is that Coptic resembles other languages where one written letter may be used to represent different consonant sounds, the sound being determined by the location in a word and in relation to vowels.

It is published in Le Muséon 2012 Vol.125 (3-4), pp.267-306.
