"Poetae carmina scribunt."

Translation:The poets write poems.

September 9, 2019



I believe the word poetae should be pronounced poy-tay as everything I've studied says "oe" is a diphthong that should rhyme with the English word boy. Can anyone corroborate?

With macrons it is poēta. Yes, oe is pronounced like 'oy' but is not. Poena has that 'oy' in it.

Other pronunciations may vary however.
