Coptic loanwords of Egyptian Arabic… 111 nouns ( bis å ra < pes+ar » , bas/ xa, < pi+sxo , even one in which the second constituent has an attached pronominal suffix, namely, galam/nf < í e+lem+f ), a possible case of the habitual present prefix { ay/k/f } in a Ê— a Ê , as well as traces of the wide use of imperatives, single or in couples for narrative purposes (e.g., ba ™™ , gala gala and gahgah · n ), a case of rhythmic slang ( k å ni wm å ni ) and little else.

    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.
