How/why do people pronuance Caesar

Simple question, I am assuming that Caesar is pronounced as in Ky-aesar. But generally people in films, TV, media or should I group them as popular culture say it as Se-aesar.

Where/when did the pronounciation go so 'wide' or the marker like this?

Or have I get it all wrong?

thanks

Oxford latin Dictionary

Hello people, I was wondering if anyone has ever come across the oxford latin dictionary. I'm talking about the version that costs ~$200!

Is it worth the price?

My goal is to learn the basics in the short term so I can read and speak 'average' latin material , but for the long term so I can play around with the language itself.

thanks

I was introduced to latin in a small private school that tought it to all of the students. When the highschool shutdown I was forced to learn on my own. After several weeks of frustration of dealing with some of the more complex writting techniques I found this site and was ...

Dative of possession

Good day Latin scholars and enthusiasts,

I am a Latin novice - and that's giving me a lot of credit - who would like anyone's assistance with the Dative of possession. Specifically, in contrast to the phrase "Soli Deo gloria" - To God alone the glory, I would like to add - "the shame is mine."

Now apparently the dative of possession places accent on the MINE part of the possession, which is fitting, but ...

Use of possessive

Is there a definite rule about the use of "suus" Vs. "eius/eorum"? I must admit that these possessives confuse me somewhat. Let me give you an example.

Is it better to say:

Puellam ad litus adhibui ut suam pulchram faciem mirarer.

Or

Puellam ad litus adhibui ut eius pulchram faciem mirarer?
