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.
