The Leipzig-Jerusalem Transliteration of Coptic

Eitan Grossman, Martin Haspelmath

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


In this article, we propose a system for transliterating Coptic, akin to those systems used for transliterating Greek, Russian, or Arabic. It is intended to serve as a standard for linguists interested in making Coptic data more accessible to non-specialists. We also discuss some questions that may arise, and provide several fully transliterated and glossed Coptic examples.
