Hi everybody; I've been sudying Homeric Greek through Pharr's book and finding it pretty enjoyable and challenging.
I've been also trying to recite Homer using pitch accent. I read this article : http://community.middlebury.edu/~harris/Classics/Greekaccents.html which suggests using a Fifth, and went on practicing with a guitar . Then just after I got the tone right I realised that something was not sounding quite well, I mean, it seemed the Fifth only sounded nice in some isolated words but very weird in any longer sentence.
Then after hearing annis' recitation I realised the tone was too high. I guess William uses a Major Third(is that right?) and that sounds soooo much better than the fifth! Now I'm practicing with major thirds and I'm much more satisfied.
Has anyone tried another tone, or thinks some tone is better-sounding or more historically acurate than the others?
