Pronunciation of Latin in English Most Latin words and phrases used in English are said with a strongly anglicized pronunciation, which is quite different from the way they were pronounced in ancient Rome. Other Latin expressions came into English from church Latin, or from medieval Latin, which were pronounced yet another way. It is therefore not always easy to predict the exact anglicized pronunciation of Latin words and phrases, but the following rules generally apply: || Unstressed i's are pronounced . || Stressed i's are usually pronounced , as in ad infinitum and bona fide , but if they are short they too are pronounced , as in ab initio . || At the end of a word, Latin - i is pronounced , as in the plurals cacti and stimuli , and in technical scientific names such as Musci , the mosses. || The letters ae are normally pronounced as , as commonly in technical scientific names such as Compositae , the botanical name for the family of flowering plants that includes the daisy and dandelion. Occasionally, and unpredictably, some Latin words and phrases are not normally anglicized in pronunciation. In curriculum vitae , for example, vitae is normally pronounced as in Classical Latin or as in church Latin, rather than the expected of anglicized Latin. As examples of the pronunciation of other vowels, note the following: inter alia , quod erat demonstrandum , pro bono publico , modus operandi . Pronunciation of c and g varies in different contexts: || Before a and o: c and g are pronounced and respectively. || Before e and i: c is usually pronounced , as in circa , and g is pronounced , as in fungi . || However, before i: c (and also t) may be pronounced , as in prima facie and ab initio .
