Latin: Standard Latin pronunciation according to Roman usage
Below is the Latin pronunciation guide according to Roman usage. In my
opinion, it really is the only legitimate way to pronounce Latin.
Latin Pronunciation guide
(NOTE: the following is taken from the Liber Usualis and will be the
basis for all Latin pronunciation in Exultate.)
Vowels and Dipthongs:
A pronounced as in the word Father, never as in the word can.
E pronounced as in the word red, met, get, never as in the word Ray.
I pronounced as ee in Feet, never as i in milk or tin.
O pronounced as in blow, never as aw in saw.
U pronounced as oo in moon, never as u in custom.
Y pronounced and treated as the Latin I.
As a general rule, when two vowels come together each keeps its own
sound and constitutes a separate syllable.
This applies to ou, ai and ei (dei = deh-ee)
AE and OE are pronounced as one sound like the letter E
AU, EU, AY
