nile river[edit]

The White Nile[edit]

The lead in this article says that the White Nile is a tributary of the Nile, whereas under Course we are told that the Nile above Khartoum is "also" known as the White Nile. Which is right? If the White Nile is a tributary, surely that puts the source of the Nile at Khartoum and the river much less than 4000 miles long.?--Mhockey (talk) 18:12, 18 February 2015 (UTC)

Nile in Egyptian Arabic[edit]

ter'a (ter3a) is the name of a narrow local nile river branch in Egyptian Arabic which is connected to the ancient Egyptian Name "itru3a" which in Egyptian Arabic itter'3a(el-ter3a). Also river in Arabic is "nahr" not nahal which means bees! --108.162.136.215 (talk) 04:29, 17 June 2015 (UTC)

Semi-protected edit request on 13 August 2015[edit]

In the heading, the following text:

  Coptic: ⲫⲓⲁⲣⲱ, P(h)iaro

should be edited to include also the Sahidic Coptic form of the name. I suggest:

  Coptic: Sahidic ⲡⲉⲓⲉⲣⲟ peiero, Bohairic ⲫⲓⲁⲣⲱ p(h)iaro

Note that here I have also suggested changing the punctuation and capitalization of the Bohairic part of the entry. Emmstel (talk) 22:36, 13 August 2015 (UTC)

My first reaction was to turn this down per MOS:FORLANG, but since we seem to have scooted right on past that already, I'll leave this open for someone who may have a bit more direct knowledge of the language (or at least has the fonts installed). ‑‑ElHef (Meep?) 19:54, 14 August 2015 (UTC)
I've posted a request at WT:EGYPT for someone with knowledge of the languages to take a look at this. Ivanvector 🍁 (talk) 15:55, 19 August 2015 (UTC)
