Double Vowels

In order to say things like “Where is...” and a host of other words, we’re going to have to put two vowels one right after the other. In most languages, when you do this, the vowel sounds get blended together. In Greek, though, there are certain double-vowel combinations that don’t come out as you might imagine.

For example, sounds like o in port: hear the sound
and sounds like ee in meet: hear the sound,
but combined into , we get the sound of oo in soon! hear the sound

Here are some of the double vowels (you'll meet the remaining two sets later.)

Double Vowel sound Notes:
soon hear the sound
better hear the sound same sound as
