What's the difference beetween η and ή

March 14, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/fotiosgaridis

η without accent is the article

ή with the accent is the disjunctive one... this translates as "or".

Examples

Η Μαρία και η Μαργαρίτα. = Mary and Margaret.

Η Μαρία ή η Μαργαρίτα; = Mary or Margaret?

As you published this in "theeta" discussion, please make sure that you don't confuse "eeta" (η) with "theeta" (θ).

what is a theta?!

Now theta is also accepted. This is the Erasmian system that wants to attribute the classic Attic phonetical system.

This random acceptance/non-acceptance of letter or word form is really annoying. I hope once I'm out of the spelling skill and into grammar and vocabulary this won't be an issue.

Will the Duolingo team ever make a course for classical Greek? I'd love to learn the old classic pronunciation and grammar

I don't think they will ever do. Pronunciation would probably be the same as modern Greek considering that no valid ancient pronunciation arrived in our days (i.e. no recordings are available). Phonetic studies and books are also available in the last 300 years so in my opinion shouldn't be considered valid for a language continuously spoken and evolved 2000+ years before. About the grammar there are many books that you can find and study.

    Tengo una pregunta, el "theeta" debe ser "theta" de verdad? Siempre había pensado que era "theta".

    July 2, 2018

    https://www.duolingo.com/Karol_Gherard

    Tú habías pensado que era zeta, no theta, ya que estás tratando de traducir tus clases de griego al inglés donde zeta ζ se pronuncia theeta aunque la pronunciación real en griego se acerca más a la pronunciación española. Pd. Soy mexicano, pero lo comprendí perfectamente.
