<DIV><FONT face=Arial size=2>I am double minded about the question of how the
koine&nbsp; should be pronounced.&nbsp; On the one hand, it would be easier to
pick up the differences between words if the recording consistently used a
scheme that clearly distinguished the pronunciation of vowels and
dipthongs.&nbsp; On the other hand, I suspect that there may be places where the
New Testament is using a play on words that is only obvious when read
aloud.&nbsp; It would be helpful for the pronunciation to make those word plays
somewhat obvious.</FONT></DIV>
