49 The same is meant by its being listed in CA dictionaries, though mistakenly attributed to Persian stock, e.g., in the Lis å nu l Á arab , a common misapprehension of their authors upon dealing with items suspected of being foreign. In their unp. article, B EHNSTEDT & W OIDICH report several scholars’ views about this item, not taking any sides in the dispute about its origin, Egyptian, Persian or Talmudic. 50 E.g., ko(o)h < q Á™ “corner”, meei < m’ Á t “truth”, maab < m Á b “thirty”, naei » < n Á j.t “stake”, aeik < Á qw “bread”, ooh < iglottal Á™ “moon”, soohe < ś Á™Á “to remove”, etc. 51 Cf. AA ka ÁÁ ák “to coil or twist” in C ORRIENTE 1997a: 463.

Coptic loanwords of Egyptian Arabic… 99 Egyptian etymon, although mentioning possible intra-Arabic etyma containing q/kl- sequences, which might have been blended with Arabic { Á rj} “to limp”. kal ·™ “corn cob beaten to gather the kernels”: BH 758 and B 43, who suggests a Cp. etymon k » lh “to strike” (Crum 106), not endorsed by Vittmann 200, fn. 8, nor by Behnsted & Woidich in their unp. article, in which they signal the presence of variants with /q/ and suggest a further member of the Arabic series {q r/l/ }, {ql Á } , etc. kull å” “kind of z r ”: HB 761, “Cp.”. It is, in fact, likely to partially reflect Cp. kelol ”jar”, attached to a second constituent, which is difficult to ascertain; see baql · la and ball å” ( ) , of which it could be a blending. Vittmann 211 marks this item with a question mark, and Behnstedt 1997:35 hesitantly propounds a contamination of ball å” with Arabic qullah “water jug”, and suggest kinship with Cp. kle/ § and kele “vessel for liquids” (Crum 102). kinn “sheaf”: contributed by Behnstedt 1981:90, with the Cp. etymon knaau (Crum 112) and vars., which we subscribe. See daqnu and ginw above. kiy å k and kiyahk “4 th month of the Cp. calendar”: HB 772, from Cp. kiahk . lib å n “tow, rope of a Nile sailing boat”: HB 776 and B 43, who propounds the Cp. etymon leban (Crum 137). Vittmann 223 emphatically declares that the Cp. word is borrowed from Arabic, but the CA dictionaries (e.g., Lis å nu l Á arab, T å ju l Á ar · s and Alq å m · su lmu ™∏’ ) do not carry it, while younger works like Kazimirski’s, where it is listed, do not have that kind of authority. lib s “carp-like Nile fish”: HB 778 and B 43 ( lab s ), who propounds the Cp. etymon lab § s (Crum 148) accepted by Vittmann 211 and Behnstedt & Woidich in their unp. article. lib “bundle of plants”: HB 778 and B 43, who propounds the Cp. etymon l » b ”crown, coping or battlement of roof” (Crum 138, metaphorically said of the refrain in a hymn, which is retained by Behnstedt & Woidich in their unp. article), accepted by Vittmann 211. Behnstedt 1981 has instead lib a “bush; potato or tomato plant”, with the CP. item leb “twigs, brushwood” (Crum 137), a much better option on both phonetic and semantic accounts, in our view.

    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.
