Same question here... Lemme know if u figure it out... Dunno why ppl flood the discussion with IT issues..
Why is the gamma in the beginning pronounced like a y
Because that's how γ is pronounced when ε follows. Γ on its own is never pronounced like a hard g and never, no matter what the letter combination, as a soft g.
Hard g is γκ or γγ.
The normal pronunciation of "γ" is "y" (like "yard") but also sounds like the "u" in "university" (listen to "γεγονός" or "γιαγια" in Google translate and you will understand. There is not a real match in English alphabet. And if you see "γγ" or "γκ" you pronounce it "g" (like "grammar")
