I didn't report this, but it seems the speaker pronounces /filiaei meaei/ - it really comes out like an English "aye" /ai/ sound.
I thought it was an /ai/ sound in Old Latin and it changed to /ae/ in Classical.
Yeah when I studied Latin in school, I was taught æ was to be pronounced like a long A sound; so this audio is getting to me..
...is unnatural English - it suggests an habitual action. 'My daughters are asleep' or 'My daughters are sleeping'?
