Join me Sunday June 28th at 1PM Eastern time as I conduct a full lecture on why the Coptic language is a totally separate language from Middle-Egyptian using the Mboli model. In 2010, Jean-Claude Mboli released a pivotal text titled _Origine des langues africaines: Essai d’application de la méthode comparative aux langues africaines anciennes et modernes_, in which he argued that Coptic was not the last stage of a language continuum, which included Old-Kingdom, Middle-Kingdom, New-Kingdom, and Demotic. But that Coptic was a separate language from a separate branch of the Negro-Egyptian language family conceived of by the great Dr. Theophile Obenga. This conclusion is controversial in Egyptological circles, and in this discussion my aim is to provide clarity to the arguments made in Mboli (2010). This is a full lecture, at least 2 hours, so I encourage everyone to take notes and have snacks ready. When the lecture is complete, I will add the time stamps for each section of the lecture so that it is easier to navigate for those catching the archives. So set your reminder, like, and share with friends and colleagues.
