Which form of Latin is this? Classical, vulgar, liturgical, something else? I've only dabbled so far and it looks like Classical to me, but I'm not certain yet.
It's Classical, although there seems to be one quirk that I notice: I believe "ph" is supposed to be pronounced as a plosive consonant (a breathy "p" like in "pot") and not like the fricative "f." One of the voices pronounces "Stephanus" with "ph," while another pronounces it with "f."
"Embrace and share regional language differences A language can have many words, accents and ways to say the same thing. We think that’s one of the wonders of languages. Approach these conversations with an open mind and attitude."
Let's all be respectful of the differences in languages.
Using Portuguese (or Spanish or Italian) as a starting point is much better than using English. Just remember that the C is always hard (like K), the G is always hard (no J sound), and the V sounds like W. The only other one that throws off my students is that ae sounds like eye in English.
I also would like it has diacritics but there were never used in written Latin, only in dictionaries.
I don't think the speakers' native language is Germanic, otherwise they would spontaneously pronounce long i as [iː], short i as [ɪ], long u as [uː], short u as [ʊ], which was also the pronunciation in classical Latin.
Sorry, my post is misplaced, it should be below Leandro's one.
Nancy, thank you so much! Great job! I must admit I like the voices very much, especially the female voice.
You speak with so much enthusiasm and energy!
It's a pleasure to listen to such a voice.
I am very happy to be able to learn Latin in this way. - Please, don't ever be discouraged! You're great and your voice is great. All the best to you!
