Lecture times and locations
The unit will be taught every Wednesday from 4 to 6 pm. This 2-hour class will combine the lecture and tutorial. The class will be held in Y3A 246, and will be recorded for external students.
The textbook we shall be using is: Thomas O. Lambdin, Introduction to Sahidic Coptic, Macon 1983, 2nd edition 1992.
This book is a textbook, it is not a reference grammar. Students with previous knowledge of Coptic or those becoming interested, in the course of this class, in more advanced problems of Coptic grammar may want to consult the grammars indicated in the bibliography. From there they can obtain directions towards specialised studies on individual problems they may be interested in. In addition to the textbook, the unit website will make written coursenotes available, which summarise the most important points of the face-to-fact teaching in writing. I will put any further readings which are relevant to the unit on the iLearn page.
The unit has an iLearn page which can be accessed at https://ilearn.mq.edu.au/login/index.php. PC and internet access are therefore required. Basic computer skills (e.g., internet browsing) and skills in word processing are also a requirement. Material for this unit may be delivered via the unit iLearn page. The classes will be recorded for external students.
