Aubrey Posted November 29, 2011 Share Posted November 29, 2011 The book (LfC) says short a's are pronounced like short a's in English, "a" as in "act." So "casa" is cahsah? :ack2: I googled, then, & the first site I found said that a short a in Latin should sound like "ah" in "Dinah." (As opposed to a long a which is "a" as in "father," according to both sources.) I could imagine Dinah & father to sound the same, maybe. I pronounce Dinah more like Dinuh, though. And I can't imagine saying "cuhsuh." So if the short a is different from the long a...does casa sound the same in Latin as it does in Spanish? If so, how do you pronounce the long a? If not, how on earth do you say, "casa"? :bigear: Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
