Year 2002-2003

March 8, 2003
Saturday
 Social Hour: 6:00 PM
Dinner: 7:00 PM

Lecture by Dr. Matthew Dillon, Professor of Classics at Loyola Marymount University.

He will try to answer the following questions: Why don't Classical Scholars pronounce Ancient Greek in the same way as Modern Greek? How do we know what Ancient Greek sounded like? How and when did the sounds change?

In his presentation, Prof. Dillon will focus on the role of Erasmus, the great Renaissance Humanist, who is usually credited (or blamed!) for "reforming" the pronunciation of Ancient Greek. Dr. Dillon will reassess the recommendations of Erasmus in an attempt to show that, despite the differences, the pronunciation of Ancient Greek must be based on
a knowledge of Modern Greek.

PLACE: ROSKI Room (next to the cafeteria in University Hall) Loyola Marymount University, Lincoln Blvd. and LMU Drive 
PRICE: $25.00 per person
