ἁνδάνω διδάσκω Bigranger75th

Post by Bigranger75th »

I’m looking for good suggestions on how to learn to pronounce Ancient Greek words.
Books I have many of, I’m studying from home suggestions would be welcome.

Thank you,
Bigranger75th

I like the pronunciation guide in the beginning of the Cambridge Greek Grammar best, if you are looking for a classical pronunciation. But fricatives are probably better than aspirates (I aspirate θ φ χ). And nobody ever tells you how important it is to stomp the ictus.
