listening exercises for alphabet is inconsisten. kappa exercise accepts κ but rejects καππα and this exercise accepts δελτα and rejects δ
I would suggest that "δ" be transliterated as "thelta" as opposed to "delta". Δδ is not pronounced with a 'd' sound and can very clearly be understood with the "th" sound as in "the".
That could be an additional option, but the traditional name of the letter in English is "delta".
Oh my gosh! I'm looking at your streak and you have 511 that's like really cool I've seen someone with like 916 I can't even get pass ten cause I get busy all the time. But otherwise good job
I disagree, too confusing with the thêta letter. And also, because the name is "delta" in english.
The name of the letter D in English is "dee", and the name of the letter Δ in Greek is "δέλτα" - the only difference seemingly being that Greeks write out the letter names in full sometimes, where we don't do that that much.
It's a letter of the Greek alphabet. Comes between xi and pi. Looks like a Latin "o" -- the Greek omicron is "ο".
I'm confused, maybe someone can help me. In this exercise I hear the letter "δ" as a "d", like in "dad", but previously I heard it like a "z" or a "th". This is for a reason? The word was δαδα and it sounded like zaza.
/v/ and /ð/ sound pretty similar - I mixed them up a fair bit learning Welsh as well from an audio course.
Is delta the pronunciation of the letter d? Please explain. Same with a-alpha.
It is 'th' as in this.
