Latin accents

Postby victores » Fri Mar 13, 2009 7:39 pm

hi I'm victores I speak English,Spanish and some Latin with a Spanish accent [I follow the rules of Latin pronunciation]
I find Latin with an English accent to be a bit painful to me
examples
Christian
latin,christianus,(chris tya nus] [deep English accent chrestchanas]something similiar to this
spanish cristiano [chris tya no] [deep English accent chresti, ánno]
I love you
latin te amo[te a mo] [deep english accent teh ammow]
spanish te amo [te a mo] [again with the english o teh ammow]

and then especially with a deep english r it hurts my ears sometimes
Spanish r's and double rr's are so much more beautiful to use for Latin.

Pero cual es su pregunta, Victores? O es que solamente esta haciendo un comento?

De todos modos, estoy de acuerdo con sus pensamientos sobre el acento. La ortografia de espanol y de latin son mas semejantes, y
la pronunciacion espanola de latin me suena mas suave y natural. Pero hay que conceder que el espanol tambien se he alejado del
latin con respeto a ciertos aspectos de la pronunciacion. Por ejemplo, los vocales cortos (si uso la terminologia correcta), se aproximan
mas a los del ingles de hoy. O asi creo.

Que piensa Ud.?
