How did the Romans pronounce their language, Latin
By Knut Holt
In Latin the words were pronounced as written. So if you know the sound each letter stood for, you will know how to pronounce it in genuine Roman style.
The stops p,t,k (and c) were always pronounced the same way. The sounds were the same as the most usual pronounciation in English, but without the breath called aspiration, and therefore they sounded sharper, like the way they are pronounced in the Romance languages. The same is true about the stops b,d,g.
Latin uses the letter c instead of k in most words. Even though c and k was always pronounced as k, there was probably a slight difference in pronounciation before front vowels (i, e, ae, oe). Before front vowels the sound was probably made with the thongue in the mid of the mouth. In these cases c was originally used before front vowels and k elsewhere. later c was mostly used everywhere except in greek lonewords.
C was always pronounced as k, never as s.
"Ti" was pronounced "ti", never pronounced "tsi".
Ae was pronounced as the diphtong ai (like the i in the word "mine")
Oe was pronouced as the diphtong oi (like the oy in "boy")
Ui was a difting composed of a sound like in "cool" plus an i like in "pit".
R was a rolled thongue tip r, like the Italian r.
V was pronounced as English w. U after a consonant was also pronounced as w. Qu was pronounced as kw. In old latin there was not any difference between the letters u and v. U and v were only two styles of writing the same letter. Sometimes you can encounter latin written this way, which sometimes makes it difficult to know how it shall be pronounced. But the letter will in this case mostly be pronounced u between two consonants, and w after a consonant and in the beginning of words.
J is pronounces as y in "yes". In old writing one used i instead of a j. In latin written in this style, i will mostly be pronounced i between two consonants, and j after a consonant and in the beginning of words.
In late latin m in the end of a word, was not prononced like m. but indicated a nasalization of the vowel before. But it is fine to prononce it as m, because this is the oldest way of pronouncing it.
If a consonant was written double, it was pronouced longer that a simple written consonant.
X indicated ks. Z was only used in greek loan words and indicated ts or ds.
y was most probably pronounces i by most Romans, but the correct pronounciation is like u in french "sur".
O was a clean vowel, not a diphtong, and was pronounced as the vowel in "more". I was always a clean vowel, lik in "pit". Likewise a was a clean vowel like in "calm". E was a clean vowel like in "bed", but perhaps a litttle narrower. U was a clean vowel like in "cool", but perhaps somewhat longer back in the mouth and somewhat narrower.
Latin vowels could be short or long, but this was not indicated in script, except in certain instances where a bar was placed over long vowels.
In latin words, the stress usually fell on the next to last syllable. If the third last syllable had a long vowel, that syllable got the stress.
