Title: Zur direkten und indirekten Rede im Koptischen
Author(s): QUECKE, Hans
Journal: Journal of Coptic Studies
Volume: 1 Date: 1990
The author investigates the proportion in the rendering of direct and indirect speech in Coptic. The examples from the texts of the New Testament show that there is a tendency in Coptic to give precedence to direct speech over indirect speech, also when the original Greek text uses indirect speech.
