bag/jur · m “metal rod by which the depth of a ploughshare may be adjusted”: contributed by Behnstedt 1981:83, and etymologised as from Cp. p+ c arom “staff, rod” and vars. (Crum 828), which we subscribe. ba ™™ “gone!, finished!”: HB 54, in baby-talk, “Cp.” Possibly, from p » h “to break” (Crum 280). This connection is outright rejected by Vittmann 220 who considers it as merely onomatopoeic and non-etymologizable, which is mentioned by Behnstedt & Woidich in their unp. article without any comment. bixx : “boo!”: HB 55, “Cp.”, and B 40, who provides the correct etymon in this language, p+ix “the devil” (Crum 89). Vittmann 207 mentions this etymon and announces a further comment which, however, is found nowhere in this paper. As for Behnstedt & Woidich in their unp. article, they are clearly in favour of an onomatopoeic origin. birba “site of a ruined temple”: HB 60, “Cp.”, and B 40. Indeed, from p(e)+rpe ”the temple” (Crum 299), with agglutination of the definite article, as has been known long since and mentioned by every scholar. birbir “chicken”: HB 60, “Cp.” But for this meaning, Cp. only has papoi (Crum 266), which does not provide a suitable etymon on phonetic grounds; however, there is a brre “young person” (Crum 43), semantically apt to evolve in that manner, and phonetically valid, above all, if the Cp. definite article was of such modern Moroccan forms like x å y “my brother”, Andalusi f å “mouth”, etc.; see also C ORRIENTE 1977: 86, § 5.5.1.

Coptic loanwords of Egyptian Arabic… 69 agglutinated, i.e., pi-brre , which could easily have developed into a bi- consonantal redoubled root structure; see note on wirwir . Vittmann 208 concedes the possibility of such a borrowing in both cases, while Behnstedt & Woidich in their unp. article are clearly favourable to an onomatopoeic origin. burubiyya pl. bar å yib “kind of soil”: is contributed by Behnstedt & Woidich in their unp. article, from Vollers 653, attributed to Cp. roue (Crum 306 “stubble; land of inferior quality”), with agglutination of the Cp. definite article. barsim “lucerne”: HB 65, labelled as Cp., and B 40, including the correct etymon bersim (Crum 43). bur ”mat made of palm leaves”: BH 65, “Cp.”, and B 41, who provides the correct Cp. etymon pr §— “mat”, a cognate of p » r ”to spread” (Crum 269), also reflected in EA bara “to squat”, in HB 65, in which its Cp. origin is mentioned. Vittmann 206 and 209 reproduces these derivations and does not dismiss them. Semitic {fr } “to spread” appears to have been borrowed from Egyptian, but much before the Cp. period. 13 These items do not come up in Behnstedt’s materials; however, for the same root he has bar with two meanings, namely, “fallow land which is ploughed, watered and ploughed again” and “first ploughing”. He considers them related and mentions the possible Cp. etyma p » r “flat surface” (Crum 271), p » rs “to break up with the plough” (Crum 269 only “to slaughter”) and a contamination of p » r “fallow” (quoted with an asterisk, however, and unrecorded in Clum) with the latter.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
