I just discovered this site, and I have to say, I am amazed! Everything is laid out so well, and there is a wealth of information here. I also must say that your case for modern Greek pronunciation of classical and Koine Greek makes a whole lot more sense to me than the "scholastic" pronunciation rules I was taught in my single year of Greek! Learning Greek as a living language really interests me, as I am very interested in the Orthodox Church. I hope to apply some of the Greek I learned several years ago to my current study of the Orthodox Church, and intend to learn to pronounce it according to the rules of Modern Greek. Thanks for this site!

Could anybody help me in pronunciation of η, because I encountered “ey” like “they”.

Hi Julies
Pronounce it slightly longer than ι.
