Koine Greek Phonology

So, uhm, who in the world took the time to make the Wikipedia page for Koine Greek Phonology so incredibly thorough and surprisingly accurate?

Somebody with some training has a lot of time on their hands.

  1. Shhhhhhh! Don’t let Jim hear you. When you look at the history of page edits there are a number of people who have contributed. Perhaps it’s a vindication of the Wikipedia model ;0

  2. The only problem with it is that I’ve already seen so many mistakes, inaccuracies and half-truths on Wikipedia, that I just don’t trust these articles any more. It’s not the obvious mistakes that are dangerous–those get corrected quickly. It’s the less well known stuff, especially when it’s supposedly “sourced information”, often from a very difficult to acquire source, so no one dares to correct it (or even if someone does, it gets reverted)

    1. except this time the sources used are good ones and the discussion is excellent. There isn’t an “only problem” here. There are mistakes, inaccuracies and half-truths on Wikipedia. That’s why I said, “surprised.”

      THIS particular article is excellent and the person who wrote it knew what they were saying.

  3. I like that it doesn’t oversimplify matters. I would have expect some idea of a uniform pronunciation from wikipedia.

    Nonetheless, I will stubbornly stick to pitch-accent as opposed to stress-accent.
