    Would someone mind clearly enunciating the letters y and [y-long:39vazsd3][/y-long:39vazsd3], preferably as part of a word? Perhaps myrta and T[y-long:39vazsd3][/y-long:39vazsd3]deus?

    Sorry, that should actually have been θυμός with the stress falling on the last syllable ... well, then again, a Roman would move the accent to the first syllable of course :p (like he moves it form the i to the y in Thukydides)

    Thanks, Bitmap. I'm going to have a hard time distinguishing that from "i" and "u", but I'll get it down eventually.

    Yes thanks Bitmap. It makes things a lot easier to hear it...
