Question about Rice
Hi, I have a question, if ζ sounds like Z and χ sounds like Ch/J, why is 'Rice' in Greek spelt ρυζι and pronounced as if the ζ were an χ?
Well in fact it sounds like a z, perhaps the recording was not that clear. You can try listening to the word on google translate, I checked it for you, it has the correct pronunciation.
I'm a native speaker, so if you have any other questions, feel free to post on my stream!
Yes, there is in fact a problem in some exercises, especially where there is a -ζι or -ζει somewhere in the sentence. It sounds like -χι or -χει. Not sure if we will be able to fix this though :/
Also, just for the record, the voice for listening exercises for Greek is not a native recorded or something like that, it's actually a text-to-speech program. It would have been nice if it was an actual native recorded, but I guess that wasn't quite possible^.^
