Latin Pronunciation

Postby jamesee0106 » Tue Nov 19, 2013 8:59 am


Is there a difference between pronouncing syllables (1) long by nature and (2) long by position? For example, words like ser-vat and sa-pi-ens, the syllable of which being followed by two or double consonants? And for common syllables, like patrem (stop + liquid)? Is the pronunciation of these two kinds of syllables the same - both long? Or are long syllables by position pronounced short?
