I posted a message a couple of days ago asking for help to prepare a lecture on Maths. Some colleages send me very good resources to find how the notation is read but I still need some help with the Greek letters that are common in Maths.



Thank you in advance.

Pronunciation of Greek maths symbols Jun 26, 2002

The following web site might help:

http://www.worldofyak.com/greekalphabet/



You can click on all the names of the letters and it will tell you all about them including how to pronounce them.



Example:

Omega

Omega (pronounced OH-meg-ga) means \"big O\" and in classical times was pronounced like aw in paw, or like or in Roy Orbison -- another Big O! In modern Greece it has the same sound as omicron, namely like o in hot.



Hope this is what you are looking for! I had fun reading it anyway!
