Latin Pronunciation: Meus Pater
Dear Latin Teacher,
I am wondering how you would pronounce the following: "meus pater meus vir"
Thank you, Anonymous
The only letter in your phrase that differs much from English is the 'v' of vir
, which would have sounded more like our 'w'.
Then the -r- might have been trilled a bit. And the -e- sounds like our -ay-.
So, 'my father my man
' or 'my father my hero
' in Latin:
Phonetically: may-oos pah-ter may-oos weer
You'll have to forgive my Oregon accent. Just curious, why do want to say this?
Thanks for asking a Latin teacher.
