Sous la direction de Madiha Doss et Catherine Miller Il nous a paru utile de présenter un panorama des langues en Égypte, dans une perspective à la fois historique et contemporaine mettant en valeur la diversité et la pluralité des pratiques linguistiques à travers les époques.

Notre démarche faisait donc appel tant à des compétences d’historiens qu’à celles de linguistes, et c’est ce regard croisé qui nous intéressait. Nous avons réuni principalement des contributeurs résidant en Égypte pour favoriser de réels échanges entre les participants, la proximité géographique rendant possibles plusieurs séances préliminaires de réflexion commune et des apports mutuels.

Periphrastic perfects in the Coptic dialects: a case study in grammaticalization | Eitan Grossman. Periphrastic Perfects in the Coptic Dialects 3 In yet other dialects – mostly ‘early’ varieties – one finds synchronic variation; how-ever, it seems that in few if any varieties of Coptic the functional opposition betweenPreterite and Perfect is marked by a formal opposition between auxiliaries ⲁ a- and ϩⲁ ha - (Funk 1981, Richter 1997/1998). As such, the term ‘perfect’ is a misnomer for Coptic ⲁϥⲥⲱⲧⲡ afsôtp or any variant of the unmarked past, and should be replaced by ‘preterite,’ or simply ‘past’ where no opposition obtains.

A modified scheme of the usual presentation of these subsystems is:T fi ϩ h)a- ⲙⲡ ⲉ - mp(e)- ⲙⲡⲁⲧ mpat(e)- Within many Coptic varieties, the lexical verb ⲟⲩⲱ ouô ‘to finish’ is grammaticalizedinto a source construction, ‘to finish doing X’ when in construction withan imperfective converb (‘Circumstantial Present’).
