Pronouncing iota subscript

Postby Anthony Appleyard » Sat Aug 05, 2017 5:09 am

How do you pronounce iota subscript? I tend to pronounce it, for example ᾳ as āi as one beat. I had to learn similar sounds (written 'aai' and 'ooi') when teaching myself Dutch for two holidays motorcycling round Holland.

I don’t pronounce it. Others do, one way or another. See viewtopic.php?f=2&t=65891 for discussion.
