It makes sense to memorize the letters in order because you will want to look up words in a lexicon, which will be arranged alphabetically.

Once you know the alphabet, it will only take a year or so of reading before you are comfortable, so cheer up!

Alfabetul gotic – Wikipedia

The spelling, however, has always been intended to represent the actual pronunciation. At present, there are only five pure vowel sounds, which is not enough to make the alfabetkl necessary in classical Greek. The way to do this is to write out the small gredesc in order until you can do it neatly and quickly. No accent can fall beyond the third syllable from the end of a word. Just make sure to get them the right way round.

Greek spelling and pronunciation differ between dialects, and have changed greatly over the course of time.

How Greek actually sounded when the accent was by pitch, which the accents describe, is unknown. It evolved from Phoenician alphabets, which probably were inspired by Egyptian hieratic writing, by the addition of vowels.

It is only used on long vowels, and only on one of the final two syllables. The present letter Greek alphabet, shown at the right, is the result of a long development.

At the same time, they use the modern th for q and f for f. The breathings are rough an h-sound and smooth no h-soundand must be used on all initial vowels and the letter rwhich gets a rough breathing at the start of a word.

They say that the comma-like breathings are two parts of the letter H, pulled apart when it was adopted for the long e instead of the aspiration. It is now pronounced grefesc a stress accent on any accented syllable, and modern Greek uses only the acute accent.

Roman inscriptions usually separated words, so it is hard to believe that this was not done in writing to some degree, in Greek as well as Latin. Once you have the small gdecesc, the capitals will be no problem. If the final vowel is long, the accent must be on one of the last two syllables. The pronunciation shown is very approximate.

The Greek Alphabet

Classical scholars generally pronounce Greek rather like Latin, which has probably been done for a very long time. Accents and breathings were added by BC to ease the path of learners of Greek, which was becoming a general language.

It is often pulled towards the end of the word by inflection, when the ending has a long vowel. Possibly sentences were separated by punctuation and spacing before individual words were clearly separated by spaces. Most of these letters were retained for number notation, however, as shown.

This aspiration gradually disappeared, and is absent in modern Greek. Since heroic times there has been a constant tendency to combine allfabetul simplify vowel sounds, as evidenced by the Attic contractions. A high dot is like a semicolon or colon, used before further explanation or continuation of an idea, and the interrogation looks like a semicolon.


These are shown at the left. The first step in learning Greek is to learn the alphabet. Just when they attained their present shape is difficult to determine, but I think it was well on the way by AD.

Lambda (literă)

The small letters evolved from them for easier writing on papyrus with a pen. Greek was originally written with letters like the alfabetu shown. The basic accent is the acute.

There are several other rules for accents, but this is the most commonly appearing. The circumflex accent is a combination of the acute and grave, and often represents a contraction involving an accented vowel. The letters representing double sounds, and distinguishing long and short vowels, were mostly added later, and a few letters from early alphabets that were regarded as superfluous were dropped. Greek punctuation uses the full stop and the comma generally as in English.

When it is trecesc the final syllable, it changes to allfabetul grave when another word follows in the sentence. It is easy to print the small letters like a medieval scribe, and helps in recognition.
