Hey,

I'm Cody, and I am just starting to study Homeric Greek using Pharr's book. I'm a linguistics major going into my Senior year, and since I don't have many required courses left, I've decided to learn Greek and Latin. I'm doing Greek on my own, starting this summer, and starting Latin in the fall. I just wanted to say hey, and ask one quick question: what convention is used for Greek pronunciation? Pharr's book gives the older pronunciation (where θ is pronounced as a [th]), but there is also a reconstructed pronunciation where the θ is an aspirated [t]. What are the thoughts on this? Thanks for any help, and I'm happy to be a part of this forum.
