How's this:

<B>Erasmian pronunciation.</B> This is the pronunciation used here, and is
based on the pronunciation used by a Renaissance scholar named Erasmus, who
was the main force behind the first printed copies of the Greek New
Testament. The Erasmian pronunciation is almost certainly quite different
from the way Greek was pronounced at the time of the New Testament, but it
is widespread among scholars, and it has the advantage that every letter is
pronounced, which makes it easy to grasp the spelling of words.
