Here Livia is pronounced /livja/, but in another sentence it was pronounced /liwia/... Which kind of Latin pronunciation has been chosen for the course?
So which one is the classical?
It should be "liwia", she says "livia"
Why can't it be "Livia sum"?
It can be, and that's been accepted for at least 5 months, except in the "type what you hear" exercises.
The pronunciation of "Livia" is unclear
Why doesn't "Livia sum"?
Why doesn't it what?
I think they mean why doesn't it work, which it should do.
...sometimes the letter "V" is pronounce as an English "V". Is that an accident or usage I am not familiar with? I am very new at Latin, days old.
