Pronunciation of “Veni, vidi vici!”

This post is also available in: Polish (polski)

Julius Caesar
Julius Caesar

Julius Caesar said “Veni, vidi vici!”. However, the pronunciation of Latin in ancient Rome has little to do with medieval, later and modern pronunciation.

Currently, these words are quoted by pronunciation [vainy veedy veechy]. The pronunciation of the Romans, however, was [wainy, weedy, weaky].
