Hermes e-ma-ha[edit]

Regarding Hermes and the e-ha-ma, is this the pronunciation used for the name? So Hermes is 'was' pronunciation eh-ha-mah? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 2600:1011:B111:1DB:5100:BCB6:38EE:D429 (talk) 04:51, 30 July 2014 (UTC)

No, e-ma-ha is not the pronunciation; it's the transliteration/transcription of the Linear B word at face value. For the or a probable reconstructed pronunciation, see e.g. this. Thanatos|talk|contributions 16:30, 30 July 2014 (UTC)
I'm sorry I don't understand, I read a pronunciation for Posiden and not Hermes.
Thank you — Preceding unsigned comment added by 2600:1011:B111:1DB:5100:BCB6:38EE:D429 (talk) 20:10, 30 July 2014 (UTC)
Sorry, now it's me who doesn't understand you: Poseidon?!?
P.S. In any case, e-ma-ha, when and if it denotes the NOM sg. form, is interpreted (according e.g. to Beekes' and van Beek's Etymological Dictionary of Greek) as [hermá:ha:s].

English words of Greek origin[edit]

Thanks for your edits to this article. If we have individual links to sources, I'd prefer that they be to the Oxford English Dictionary, rather than the Online Etymology Dictionary, because I used the OxfordED in researching the article, and I think it's a more authoritative source than the OnlineED. I know that the OxfordED is behind a paywall, but WP policy says that's OK. --Macrakis (talk) 21:36, 9 September 2014 (UTC)

1.Thank you for your kind words.
2.Well if you prefer OED citations, feel free to add them... ;-) The Online Etymology Dictionary can also be used (other dictionaries too). No XOR there, the former is renown, the latter is more specialised (it's etymological) and of course, to say the least, is not hidden behind a paywall, as you've indirectly said. In fact I'd say multiple sources are most of the time preferable; no single dictionary is a thesphaton... :)
