A high dot is like a semicolon or colon, used before further explanation or continuation of an idea, and the interrogation looks like a semicolon. The pronunciation shown is very approximate. It is often pulled towards the end of the word by inflection, when the ending has a long vowel.

Classical scholars generally grecewc Greek rather like Latin, which has probably been done for a very long time.

Lambda (literă)

Once you know the alphabet, it will only take a year or so of reading before you are comfortable, so cheer up! It is easy to alfabetuo the small letters like a medieval scribe, and helps in recognition. The breathings are rough alfabetl h-sound and smooth no h-soundand must be used on all initial vowels and the letter gtecescwhich gets a rough breathing at the start of a word. The circumflex accent is a combination of the acute and grave, and often represents a contraction involving an accented vowel.

Once you have the small letters, the capitals will be no problem. The small letters evolved from them for easier writing on papyrus with a pen. There are several other rules for accents, but this is the most commonly appearing. Possibly sentences were separated by punctuation apfabetul spacing before individual words were clearly separated by spaces. No accent can fall beyond the third syllable from the end of a word. Since heroic times there has been a constant tendency to combine and simplify vowel sounds, as evidenced by the Attic contractions.


The Greek Alphabet

If the final vowel is long, the accent must be on one of the last two grecescc. This aspiration gradually disappeared, and is absent in modern Greek.

These are shown at the left. The way to do this is to write out the small letters in order until you can do it neatly and quickly. Most of these letters were retained for number notation, however, as shown. Accents and breathings were added by BC to ease the path of learners of Greek, which was becoming a general language. It makes sense to memorize the letters in order because you will want to look up words in a lexicon, which will be arranged alphabetically.

They say that the comma-like breathings are two parts of the letter H, pulled apart when grwcesc was adopted for the long e instead of the aspiration. At present, there are only five pure vowel sounds, which is not enough to make the distinctions necessary in classical Greek.

When it is on the final syllable, it changes to a grave when another word follows in the sentence.

How Greek actually sounded when the accent was by pitch, a,fabetul the accents describe, is unknown. Just when they attained their present shape is difficult to determine, but I think it was well on the way by AD.

Greek was originally written with letters like the capitals shown. Just make sure to get them the right way round. It is now pronounced with a stress accent on any accented syllable, and modern Greek uses only the acute accent. Greek spelling and pronunciation differ between dialects, and have changed greatly over the course of time. It is only used on long vowels, and only on one of the final two syllables. The letters representing double sounds, and distinguishing long and short vowels, were mostly added later, and a few letters from early alphabets that were regarded as superfluous were dropped.

The spelling, however, has always been intended to represent alrabetul actual pronunciation. The present letter Greek alphabet, shown at the right, is the result of a long development.

Lambda (literă) – Wikipedia

Greek punctuation uses the full stop and the comma generally as alfbaetul English. It evolved from Phoenician alphabets, which probably were inspired by Egyptian hieratic writing, by the addition of vowels. At the same time, they use the modern th for q and f for f. The basic accent is the acute.

Roman inscriptions usually separated words, so it is hard to believe that this was not done in writing to some degree, in Greek alfaabetul well as Latin. The first step in learning Greek is to learn the alphabet.
