Pronuntatio hispanici Latini: Auxilium Rogo

Post by persequor » Fri Aug 07, 2009 4:24 am

Ave, sodales et amici! Auxilium cvm pronuntio hispanci Latini rogo. Quomodo est enfasis silabae verborum 3 silabae? Volo ut utatur hoc pronuntium cvm discipulas meas.

Tempus fugit!

Greeings members and friends! I am asking for help with the Spanish pronunciation of Latin. How is the syllable stress of words of 3 syllables? I would like to use this pronunciation with my students. Time flies,

Carpe diem!--¡Aprovecha el día presente!--Seize the day!
---Poēta Rōmānus Horātius, Carmina (Odes), a.C. XXIII/DCCXXXI A.U.C.

Latin classes in high schools in Spain (AFAIK) teach the classical pronounciation and this includes stress: if the penultimate syllable has a short vowel, the word is proparoxytone; otherwise it's paroxytone.

Don't know about Latin America though.
