eLatin eGreek eLearn

More wired than a Roman Internet café

Learn about what the accent marks mean when reading Greek aloud. From the creator of the lesson:

The third part of "Learn Greek". The last basic rules, in order to pronounce the Greek language right.
Here you will find the pronunciation of the Greek vowel and consonant combinations.
You may find it a bit more difficult than the previous lessons, but for beginners these three lessons are more than enough.
If you have any question send me a message through you tube, or comment.
If the slides pass too fast, pause.
I also will be happy to hear your requests, or corrections.
Oh, I'm sorry I forgot the letter ή when I showed the accent on top of the vowels.
Thank you!

Nice--but an ancient Greek student probably knows this much pretty fast (this is a Modern Greek lesson). Is there some way to bring Modern and Ancient Greek together?

What is the message of this slide-show? An answer would be that today we do not speek modern Greek in the way we write it. We use today a way of writing which is historical; it transcribes an older pronunciation. In ancient Greek texts we find that the bleat of the sheep is "βη", "βη" [with perispomeni], but in modern Greek we read this bleat as "bee" "bee".
