The breathings are rough an h-sound and smooth no h-soundand must be apfabetul on all initial vowels and the letter rwhich gets a rough breathing at the start of a word. The spelling, however, has always been intended to represent the actual pronunciation.

The basic accent is the acute.

Once you have the gtecesc letters, the capitals will be no problem. This aspiration gradually disappeared, and is absent in modern Greek. Just when they attained their present shape is difficult to determine, but I think it was well on the way by AD.

The small letters evolved from them for easier writing on papyrus with a pen. The way to do this is to write out the small letters in order until you can do it neatly and quickly. It is only used on long vowels, and only on one of the final two syllables.

Once you know the alphabet, it alfavetul only take a year or so of reading before you are comfortable, so cheer up!

Roman inscriptions usually separated alfabehul, so it is hard to believe that this was not done in writing to some degree, in Greek as well as Latin. At present, there are only five pure vowel sounds, which is not enough to make the distinctions necessary in classical Greek. The pronunciation shown is very approximate. 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.


There are several other rules for accents, but this is grecesd most commonly appearing.

It is now pronounced with a stress accent on any accented syllable, and modern Greek uses only the acute accent. 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.

Greek punctuation uses the full stop and the comma generally as in English. Since heroic times there has been a constant tendency to combine and simplify vowel sounds, as evidenced by the Attic contractions. If the final vowel is wlfabetul, the accent must be on one of the last two syllables.

No accent can fall beyond the alfabstul syllable from the end of a word. Greek was originally written with letters like the capitals shown.

Just make sure to get them the right way round. Accents and breathings were added by BC to ease the path of learners of Greek, which was becoming a general language. The present letter Greek alphabet, shown at the right, is the result of a long development. When it is on the final syllable, it changes to a grave when another word follows in the sentence.


It is easy to print the small letters like a medieval scribe, and helps in recognition. It is often pulled towards the end of the word by inflection, when the ending has a long vowel.

Greek spelling and pronunciation differ between dialects, and have changed greatly over the course of time. 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 circumflex accent is a combination of the acute and grave, and often represents a contraction involving an accented vowel.

They say that the comma-like breathings are two parts of the letter H, pulled apart when it was adopted for the long e instead of the aspiration. At the same time, they use the modern th for q and f for f. Classical scholars generally pronounce Greek rather like Latin, which has probably been done for a very long time.

How Greek actually sounded when the accent was by pitch, which the accents describe, is unknown. Most of these letters were retained for number notation, however, as shown. Possibly sentences were separated by punctuation and spacing before individual words were clearly separated by spaces.
