Pronunciation – Simplified

I have adopted a not-very-radical practice of pronouncing Classical Latin vowels in a simplified manner.  A brief explanation follows the forms, but this practice basically involves one sound for each vowel.  Short vowels are pronounced short, long pronounced long.  Simple.

a = do, re, mi, fa                       ā = faaa
e = eh                                            ē = eeeh
i = bee                                            ī = beee
o = no                                            ō = nooo
u = food                                       ū = foood

y = u                                               ȳ = uuu
