Latin Pronunciation & Ancient & Modern Accents
Geo-social Applications of the Natural Phonetics & Tonetics Method
Università cà Foscari di Venezia
with counseling by Fernando Maggi
The pronunciation of classical Latin is described according to the principles of Natural Phonotonetics (which is concisely introduced in two chapters), also following ancient texts and descriptions.
This new edition improves further the phonemic structure of Latin, including geo-social differences. In addition, it provides closer examinations about all aspects of vowels, consonants, stress, and intonation.
A number of both 'ancient' and 'modern' Latin accents are also presented, for useful comparisons. Some diachronic phonopses and thousands of famous sentences and phrases are included, as well.
The concise phonopses of 26 peculiar languages are presented for comparisons, too. Several conversations and literary texts are transcribed phonotonetically.
