The Pronunciation of "Zeta" in Ancient Greek.
Bailey, Charles-James N.
Psychological explanations of the choices of the orthographic symbols and the dialectal and other variations of orthographic symbols in ancient Greek are examined in the determination of the pronunciation of the modern Greek "zeta". The pronunciation of the "double-delta" that corresponds to it in Boetian, Thessalian, Elean, Cretan, Laconian, and in the dialect of Megara is also considered as supportive research. In this connection, its voiceless congener spelled as "double-tau" or as "double-sigma" in various idioms is examined. The author contrasts previous theory with his own. Extensive documentation and a bibliography are included. Corrections and additions made by the author after publication are appended. (Author/RL)
