Latin Pronunciation Guide?

by Amy
(Paynesville, MN)

Where can I find a pronunciation guide for Latin roots? Can you recommend a book or website? For example, I thought amicus would sound like am eh cus, but it's ah MEE kus.



Hi Amy,

The answer depends on how serious you are about learning to pronounce Latin.

For an excellent general introduction to Latin pronunciation: Vox Latina: A Guide to the Pronunciation of Classical LatinLearn Latin Language Books)

For a few clues on how to start working it out on your own, see my other website: Teach and Learn Latin.

Hope this helps, and thanks for asking a Latin teacher.

Sincerely,

John
