EXPLANATORY NOTES

At the end of this file you can find 2 gif files with a scan of the Greek Rapsodies lyrics

The greek transliteration of the lyrics are not in the exact spelling of the Greek words but in their sound; therefore not the usual transliteration of Greek into Greeklish is used, but a rather arbitrary phonetic writing. The consonants are mostly pretty straightforward, the vowels have most of the problems. Here is the convention that is used:

A,a  is pronounced lice u in RUN
G,g   is pronounced like y in YARD only harder; a double "gg" is like the hard g, as is the combination "gk"
D,d   is like th in THIS
E,e  is like e in TEN
th   (theta) is like th in THINK
I,i   is like  "ee" in SLEEP but shorter in length
O,o is like o in MORE
X,x  is Chi, like a Kh.
Ou    is pronounced like "oo" in MOON, all other combinations of vowels  should be read separately.

Eranan ton tafon

doksazousin, [kale mou]

-Oh, gliki mou ear etc.
