Is this an insight into Tarheel Greek? I guess they pronounce things
different (or as we said in the Hoosier of my youth "differ'n") down there
in Durham, but here in Yankee land (where I live now) alpha, beta, eta,
theta each has two syllables, nu one, and iota three.
OTOH if the Dallas-ites I used to live among could get three syllables out
of the word "eight"...
