Question
Hello Michael,
Thank you for the translation for "My heart will always belong to you"


If you can analyze the phrase (explain how it would be pronounced), it would be greatly appreciated. It is for a tattoo and want to make sure 100% it is the right wording for Doric Greek.
Thanks again

Answer
Hi again Stephanie,

so here's a pronunciation guide; pronounce the following English words by omitting the part that is in the parentheses. Stress after the ' sign and you will get the pronunciation:

ΕΜΑ = (t)em(pl)'a(r)          
ΚΡΑΔΙΑ = cra(p)-th'i(s)-a(t
ΣΑ = sa(t)
ΕΣΤ' = (r)est
ΑΕΣ = a(t)-(r)'es(t)

Transliteration:
Ema kradia sa est' aes.


Good luck once more!

Cordially,
Michael
