Re: Roman Period Koine pronunciation of ευ in πεπαίδευνται

ναί. l athough the 'n' would almost , but not quite, drop out of auditory recognition. If 'n' is part of εβn/ewn, then the 'n' is a light off-glide before the final syllable. This was its historical position. If 'n' is part of the final syllable then 'n' in 'nt' becomes either a lightly pronounced ...

Re: Roman Period Koine pronunciation of ευ in πεπαίδευνται

πεπαίδευνται is a little tricky, but we do utter this combination in English: seventy ˈsɛvnti A bit off the point, but that final "t" in "seventy" is simply an unaspirated "t." That's the way I take ντ combinations in Restored Koine, I prefer to pronounce them with an unaspirated "t" rather than wi...

Re: Roman Period Koine pronunciation of ευ in πεπαίδευνται

So, are we positing a schwa or "uh" sound between the upsilon and the nu? Not an exact parallel, but I've heard a modern Greek speaker do this between π and ν in πνευμα. Ιt's in an audio of the Koine GNT produced by an Orthodox monk for the Greek Bible Society. I'm saying that I cannot pronounce it...

Re: Roman Period Koine pronunciation of ευ in πεπαίδευνται

But is the -ντ- pronounced -nd, or d, or otherwise? I was puzzling over that too while I went to the library just now. I was trying to figure out where you break between the syllables. I was trying to figure out whether the first syllable ended at the nu or the tau. I think in this case you have to...

Re: Roman Period Koine pronunciation of ευ in πεπαίδευνται

Hi Mike, /εβntε/ is fine. In this case though we would gave /εβvtε/ wouldn't we ? Unless I've missed something on the consonant here (entirely possible). Excuse the v for nu. I am not at my usual computer and don't have my Greek keyboard. Thx D Apologies - the above is rubbish. I think /εβntε/ is I...

Roman Period Koine pronunciation of ευ in πεπαίδευνται

Hi ya, I've been basically using Roman Period Koine (per Randall Buth's description in Living Koine Greek). I'm aware of the ευ/αυ pronunciation as described in LKG, adopting […/aβ, …/eβ] per Horrocks. It seems it was actually only beginning to come in the period but is adopted in this system for co...

Unicode codepoint for the apostrophe thing after an alphabetical number symbol

Hi ya, Given a Greek alphabetical number like α΄ or ιβ΄ or similar what is the Unicode code point for the apostrophe thing ? Or even it's name ? I am currently using a Greek Tonos (U+384) just because it looks basically right. A quick look at the code pages didn't help much. Does anyone know ? Is th...
