Latin Pronunciation in Prose

Postby jamesee0106.latin » Wed Sep 05, 2012 3:32 pm


I understand that one should read Latin verse by adhering to the principles of elision and of long syllables by position. Is is the same case for prose? - Should one read out syllables long by position and should one elide vowels? If so, are there any other rules in pronouncing Latin in prose and verse?

This is old but available:
Vetum at suppetitum hoc:
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.
