pronunciation question

Postby akerdonn » Sun Oct 23, 2011 10:53 pm

I was wondering which pronunciation system did people in the US use in the 18-19 century i.e that of Thomas Jefferson era or the Found Fathers era. latin was very popular back then. Just wondering if they used classical or church latin pronunciation. thanks.

I'm writing in Latin hoping for correction, and not because I'm confident in how I express myself. Latinè scribo ut ab omnibus corrigar, non quod confidenter me exprimam.
