Just wondering about proper pronunciation of Latin numerals. Is “c” pronounced as “ch”? Is “g” pronounced as in “giant” or as in “golf”? Thanks to anyone who can advise me.
Classical Latin: C is actually pronounced K
Classical Latin: G is pronounced as g in golf
Ecclesiastical Latin: C is pronounced as CH
Ecclesiastical Latin: G is pronounced DZ as in giant

Richard M Thompson:
How can it be asserted that the correct pronunciation for Classical Latin can be defined? The original speakers didn’t exactly leave audio records, did they? I remember poor old ‘Chips’ (“Goodbye Mr Chips”) lamenting (as a teacher of boys) a directive on pronunciation which turned the Latin word vicissim from ‘veechissim’ into ‘we kissim’. I can’t help slipping into a sort of Italian pronunciation – which it sounds as if the Ecclesiastical pronunciation (I’ve not heard it) might be closer to.
@Richard M Thompson Records found of early schooling sessions replace the letter W for the letter V, implying that that is how V is pronounced. It was confusing even for the Romans.
@Richard M Thompson latin started in italy, aka rome. of coarse you would slip to italian

It is a pleasure to have such a variety of Latin words on my computer to learn or relearn as a daily diversion!

I need help please …how can i write the date in latin
@costas VI XI MMXII
No,they didn’t leave audio records, but we can know how Latin was pronounced in ancient times several ways:
1. The Romans themselves wrote a lot about their language and how to pronounce it “correctly.” Public speaking was a high art and many rhetorical ‘handbooks’ about how to speak and how to pronounce words, survive.
2. The Roman empire was bi-lingual. Latin speakers in the west needed to learn Greek, Greek speakers in the east needed to learn Latin. Many instructional works still exist.
3. Errors and misspellings often reveal how a word was pronounced in everyday life – “habio” for “I have” rather than the correct “habeo.”
4. Transliteration to other languages and alphabets like Greek or Hebrew can reveal pronunciation. When Greeks spelled “Cicero” they could have used either Kappa or Sigma. They used Kappa, which means they pronounced it as “Kikero.”

God, those Romans were so stupid; they didn’t have a “zero.” Thanks to us Persians who discovered it and enabled the world to inherit all the points in heavens and earth.
Second Chapter: but we Persians hit the bottom and are now the scourge of the earth!
Moshiri, the Roman number for zero was “nihil,” which means nothing.
Hi, I would like to tattoo the year of birth of my parent’s, sister and myself on the inside of my forearms. I’m not really sure for example the year I was born (1954) should it read XIXLIV or MCMLIV I want it to read like a year not a number in the thousands or are both correct. Sorry for the ignorance. I’m 60 years young ok old then and running out of brain cells but I’m still learning, thankyou for your time and effort hope to hear from you thanks Kevin
romanenthusiast, I think what moshiri is trying to say is that the number zero enabled the current numbering system to be established. as clever as the romans were they had no numeral for 0 which meant their numbering system was cumbersome to say the least.
Since its development zero has been fundamental in Descartes Cartesian coordinate system and in Newtons developments of calculus. Without calculus we wouldn’t have modern physics, engineering or computers.
So nihil just didn’t cut it. I’m afraid.
But going to the origin Im not quiet sure it was completely a Persian invention. I think the eastern Asians and Indians also had similar placeholder shapes, but the origin did come from a Persian mathematician (name slips my mind( if someone does google it and it says arab please do not mix arab and Persian. The guy was Persian but as all mathematicians and scientist of the time from that period (around 8th century AD approx.) they all had to have arab names or their works wouldn’t be published, or they wouldn’t have got funded.
@Amin The first recorded use of zero was in 36bc in a Mayan script to mark events in astronomy.
This helped me so much thank you for all of your work.
This site really has all of the information and facts I needed concerning this subject and didn’t know who to ask.
I love your writing style truly loving this website .
We stumbled over here from a different web address and thought I might as well check things out. I like what I see so i am just following you. Look forward to looking at your web page repeatedly.
To Moshiri and Amin- the use of zero as a number and place holder was developed in India around the 5th century. algebraic rules for the elementary arithmetic operations appeared first in India by Brahmagupta (7th century.
Thank you soo much for making this for us, this has really helped me with my studies, so please accept my cake!!!! *hands cake*
