3 is number

з - z

Quesrion: did at some point Iota, Upsilon, and Eta all sounded like 'ee' or similar? Because that's retarded as fuck
>>
>>51041291
Thanks, and how is Xi pronounced?
>>
>>51041290
Do you always pronounce E as 'ye'? Cause you guys seem to turn it into an 'eh' in many cases. Also, what's with the O being pronounced Ah?

The pic is wrong, phi is φ and psi is ψ

We still pronounce η,ι,υ,ει,οι,υι as 'ee'

>>51041598
Only at the end of the word.

This. Shits retarded as fuck to explain without listening to how it's pronounced. I imagine most people get stuck on the pronunciation of the letter "g" or the "th" sound

How different is Koine Greek and Modern Greek? Ignoring Grammar just Alphabet and Vocabulary
>>

The one with the tail goes is used only as a final letter
>>
>>51041695
The alphabet is the same and vocabulary seems to be a mix of Ancient Greek and Modern Greek.
>>
>>51041450
>Also, what's with the O being pronounced Ah?

for some retarded grammatical(?) reasons we should write "O"s instead of "A"s in words, ukrainians and belarusians write "A"s for example

like we shall write "Moloko" while its actually "Malako"

>Do you always pronounce E as 'ye'? Cause you guys seem to turn it into an 'eh' in many cases.

usually "ye" is same as in english, but we have words with "Eh" also and if you write them with "ye" instead of "Eh" it will be retarded (it will sound retarded in russian)

example:

Electricity:
- wrong: Eлeктpичecтвo
- correct: Элeктpичecтвo

because its "Ehlektrichestvo" and not "Yelectrichestvo"

the difference is too subtle desu

I never thought about this, but I guess you're right. It would kind of like if some societies in 1000 years started naming themselves random combinations of letters from the Latin alphabet.
>>
>>51039949
Is Latin the most retarded alphabet there is? Just look at G, it's just a C with another stroke in the middle.
>>
>>51046283
Because maybe Russian is the only Slavic language where having a specific letter for that makes sense, since it doesn't sound like Ш Ч at all.

>>51041450
Most Slavic languages have two sets of vowels: one plain (they sound akin to Spanish A E I O U) and one iotated (they sound like they had a short I sound before them). For /e/ and /i/, the "default" values are iotated, so most of the time they will sound as /ye/ and /yi/.

(inb4: Russian lacks /yi/, but see Ukrainian ï.)
>>
>>51040706
who ever made that image made a mistake
it's Ψψ
>>
>>51040954
>Phoenician
>alphabet
It didn't have vowels
Also, there were other scripts for Greek before the Alphabet, like Linear B where each symbol represented a syllable.
>>
>>51041695
not very different, it's like a dialect of modern
>>
>>51041695
It depends on the timeframe... early Koine resembles more Classical, late Koine resembles more Modern.

But in general:

Alphabet - the same, but letters had different values. φ/θ/χ for example sounded like Pill/Till/Kill (nowadays they sound more like Fill/THill/Hill). υ sounded like French "u" or German "ü". This kind of thing.

Vocabulary - one or two borrowings here and there, but still pretty much the same. However, time took its toll, so some old roots are barely recognizable - for example Γη used to sound like geh-eh, nowadays it's something like "yee".

Hey guys, I'm working on another script for Romanian and I ended up making a pan-balkanic alphabet of sorts, yet I'm not quite content with it.


>>51041602

It works as a spelling reform for greek, ι being the only version of i, replacing the other letters and digraphs, η being used for /ə/, Y υ being separated in two letters: Y y and U υ, the first being used for /y/ and the last one doesn't really have a sound although I've been using it for /ɨ/, o becomes /w/ and ω remains /o/.

There are new letters for MP, NT, GK and even for sounds that appear in Cypriot Greek, such as /ʃ/.

There are images linked in the reddit post. Here's an older image.

Any suggestions?
