Rules of editing this dictionary

Rule number one

unless other wise specified, Crum is our reference when it comes to organizing/sorting words

Making the entry in the index page

  • In order to have your word listed, you must add this code [[Category:Ⲁ]] where Ⲁ is the letter your word starts with, for example if you are making entry for the word ⲥϩⲓⲙⲉ you should add [[Category:Ⲥ]] to the bottom of your page
  • if a word has different entries in curm then an entry is made for each meaning (as in Crum) and in this case the page will be called word_meaning for example ⲁⲗⲉ_mount and ⲁⲗⲉ_utensil_of_bronze
  • if a word has a single entry in crum, then this word will be the page's title example ⲁⲓⲁⲓ

Examples you should follow: Ⲁⲃⲉ for Noun Ⲁⲓⲁⲓ for Noun Ⲁⲗⲉ_rise for Verbs



Coptic words usually have more than one spelling we use Crum to determine which spelling is the one that will be placed in the index page the other spellings can optionally also be placed in the index page but redirect the user to the main entry

Examples: ⲕⲱϯ should redirect to ⲕⲱⲧⲉ

Code: * [[ⲕⲱⲧⲉ|ⲕⲱϯ]] ''B See ⲕⲱⲧⲉ''

Adding examples

Examples are to be placed in independent pages, page for each dialect So the examples of the word ⲛⲟⲩⲧⲉ should be in the following pages

  • Bohairic Examples: ⲛⲟⲩⲧⲉ_B
  • Sahidic Examples: ⲛⲟⲩⲧⲉ_S
  • Akhmemic Examples: ⲛⲟⲩⲧⲉ_A
  • SubAkhmemic Examples: ⲛⲟⲩⲧⲉ_A2

if a word has more than one entry then the example pages should be like that

  • Bohairic: ϣⲁⲓ_rise_of_sun_B
  • Sahidic: ϣⲁⲓ_rise_of_sun_S

and so on
