Those modern Greeks who expect me to pretend that Homer talked like them will cry. So don't listen.

Would acutes in long vowels start with a C and climb to an E (rather than start and end with an E)?
What about short vowels with an acute?

I could, but for two reasons. Most importantly, I fear for my web server. It isn't attached to a pipe really sufficient for shunting sound files about. Several little files in place of one larger one will keep the people I share the machine with from sending me testy email. I can watch over the next few days to see how it goes. I may be overestimating the document's likely popularity.
Yes.Would acutes in long vowels start with a C and climb to an E (rather than start and end with an E)?
And yes.What about short vowels with an acute?
Start and stay on E. Which informs my understanding of the circumflex somewhat...

Do we have any reference to the pitch intonations indicated by the accents ? If so, who/what should I be looking for ? I'd like to know more about the methods followed in recreating ancient Greek pronunciation.
I was taught that the circumflex represented a rise and fall in pitch. Guess I'll have to look into that assumption.
The use of modern musical intervals seems an arbitrary usage,
Btw, is it your opinion that once a pitch is reached (via the accent) that the recitation continues at the new pitch level until another accent is received ? Or is there a central tone that is returned to after the accent ?
