Types of coptic

Hey guys,  just asking what type of coptic do we use in the church today(Bohairic or Sahidic)?

Thanks and God Bless 


  • More specifically, Greco-Bohairic
  • Græco-Memphitic which is a modern corruption of actual Memphitic (Bohairic)
  • The dialect is Bohairic. The current pronunciation of the church can be traced back to the works of Iryan Moftah (1860's). It was based on a false premise that Coptic and Greek have the same phoentic values, yet, it became the standard in the church
