    In ecclesiastical pronunciation, the letter i sounds like ee.
    In the vocative amice, in ecclesiastical pronunciation, a has the sound in father (not an English short u sound).

    BTW, a female student can be addressed as discipula, and similarly for friend, amica Latinae.

    (Sorry, I know perfect pronunciation is not the goal, especially at the LC level, but just in case anyone else is a stickler for it.)

    I appreciate that. Thank you!

    Good to know!

    For some reason this ended up in the FFL Conversational Latin appendix.

    You can still say "In choro recitemus" because it is you plus the student.

    Pronunciation follows the Ecclesiastical rules:
    SAHL-vay uh-MEE-chay LAH-tee-nay (dih-SHIP-yoo-lay)
    VAH-lay
    SUR-jay
    SAY-day

    Salve, amice Latinae. Salve discipule.
    Vale.
    Surge.
    Sede.

  • Latina Christiana greetings/recitation commands for one student

    On p.2 of the teacher's manual for Latina Christiana, it lists the greetings and recitation commands for multiple students. Can someone please tell me what the teacher would say to one student for the hello, goodbye, stand up and sit down.

    Thank you!
