|Question:||My proto-greek isn't what it used to be... I'm a theoretical morphologist, not really my forte. I need (need is a big word, I'm writing a science-fiction piece) to figure out how the word ''titan'' could have been pronounced about 6 000 years ago, so 4 000 BC. I can't find anything interesting on the changes that may have been occurring between proto-greek and ancient greek... I'm guessing odds are it would have been pronounced just the same, but I thought I'd ask. Thanks a lot!|
