What two theta small letters? Different type faces may have slight differences... no difference in pronunciation.<br /><br />For all the other questions, see pp1-6 (original text pages, not the pages that show up at the bottom of the PDF viewer) of the JWW First Greek Book. It covers everyting in good detail.<br />
