Question
Maria,

I am look to translate a few phrases into ancient Greek. The first would be 'no soldier dies today' and 'Duty is our honor' along with 'Duty Honor Justice' and if there is any way you could help me with pronunciation, I would appreciate it. Thank you in advance

Anthony

Answer
Hello,

here are my answers:

-No soldier dies today" = Οὐδεὶς στρατιώτης θνήσκει σήμερον
-"Duty is our honor" = Tὸ προσῆκον ἡμετέρα τιμή εστίν
-"Duty Honor Justice' = Προσῆκον, Tιμή, Dικαιοσύνη

As for the pronunciation, Ive used the Pronunciation Key you can find at: http://content.answcdn.com/main/content/pronkey-answers.html

Therefore:

Οὐδεὶς (no)  is pronounced ʊdĕys. The accent stands on the ĕ
στρατιώτης (soldier) is pronounced strătyōtĕs. The accent stands on the ō
θνήσκει (dies) is pronounced thnĕskey. The accent stands on the ĕ
σήμερον (today) is pronounced sĕmĕrŏn. The accent stands on the first ĕ


Tὸ (the) is pronounced T
προσῆκον (duty) is pronounced prŏsĕkŏn. The accent stands on the ĕ
ἡμετέρα (our) is pronounced ĕmĕtĕră.The accent stands on the second ĕ
τιμή (honour) is pronounced tymĕ. The accent stands on the ĕ
εστίν (is) is pronounced ĕstyn with the accent on the y.



Προσῆκον (duty) is pronounced prŏsĕkŏn. The accent stands on the ĕ
Tιμή (honour) is pronounced tymĕ. The accent stands on the ĕ
Dικαιοσύνη (justice) is pronounced dykăyŏsnĕ . The accent stands on the

Hope this is clear enough.
Best regards,
Maria
