Once you know the alphabet, it will only take a year or so of reading before you are comfortable, so cheer up! The breathings are rough an h-sound and smooth no h-soundand must be used on all initial grecesd and the letter rwhich gets a rough breathing at the start of a word.

The present letter Greek alphabet, shown at the right, is the result of a long development. It is only used on long vowels, and only on one of the final two syllables. It is now pronounced with a stress accent on any accented syllable, and modern Greek uses only the acute accent.

Greek was originally written with letters like the capitals shown. The letters representing double sounds, and distinguishing long and short grecsc, were mostly added later, and a few letters from early alphabets that were regarded as superfluous were dropped.

The small letters evolved from them for easier writing on papyrus with a pen.

The first step in learning Greek is to learn the alphabet. Just make sure to get them the right way round. Possibly sentences were separated by punctuation alfabeul spacing before individual words were clearly separated by spaces. Since heroic times there has been a constant tendency to combine and simplify vowel sounds, as evidenced by the Attic contractions.


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. Most of these letters were retained for number notation, however, as shown. The basic accent is the acute. The spelling, however, has always been intended to represent the actual pronunciation.

The way to do this is to write out the small letters in order until you can do it neatly and quickly. Greek punctuation uses the full stop and the comma generally as in English. If the final vowel is long, the accent must be on one of the last two syllables.

The pronunciation shown is very approximate. How Greek actually sounded when the accent was by pitch, which the accents describe, is unknown. It is often pulled towards the end of the word by inflection, when the ending has a long vowel.

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.

These are shown at the left. When it is on the final syllable, it changes to a grave when another word follows in the sentence. Greek spelling and pronunciation differ between dialects, and have changed greatly over the course of time.

At the same time, they use the modern th for q and f for f.

Classical scholars generally pronounce Greek rather like Latin, which has probably been done for a very long time. It evolved from Phoenician alphabets, which probably were inspired by Egyptian hieratic writing, by the addition of vowels. No accent can fall beyond the third syllable from the end of a word.


This aspiration gradually disappeared, and is absent in modern Greek. The circumflex accent is a combination of the acute and grave, and often represents a contraction involving an accented vowel. There are several other rules for accents, but this is the most commonly appearing. 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. They say that a,fabetul comma-like breathings are two parts of the letter H, pulled apart alfabeyul it was adopted for the long e instead of the aspiration.

Grecezc is easy to print the small letters like a medieval scribe, and helps in recognition.

Just when they attained their present shape is difficult to determine, but I think it was well on the way by AD. Accents and breathings were added by BC to ease the path of learners of Greek, which was becoming a general language.

Once you have the small letters, the capitals will be no problem. At present, there are only five pure vowel sounds, which is not enough to make the distinctions necessary in classical Greek.
