Latin Pronunciation

Postby usenetuser123 » Sun Apr 11, 2004 12:07 am

While I know that most text books devote a chapter or two to explaining the pronunciation of Latin, I am still baffled by the jargons. Also, I heard that there are different versions to pronounce Latin, is that true? And what is the 'ecclesiastical' one? Is that pretty much the way Italian is pronounced? If no, what's the difference? A million thanks.

is a previous discussion where we talked about Latin pronunciation. Basically, the only book with more than a few pages on Latin pronunciation, to be the best of our decision, was Vox Latina by W. Syndney Allen.
