This is a reissue in paperback of the second edition of Professor Allen's highly successful book on the pronunciation of Latin in Rome in the Golden Age. In the second edition the text of the first edition is reprinted virtually unchanged but is followed by a section of supplementary notes that deal with subsequent developments in the subject. The author also added an appendix on the names of the letters of the Latin alphabet and a select bibliography.

Page 2 - The prominence of sounds may be due to inherent sonority (carrying power), to length or to stress or to special intonation, or to combinations of these. 210. Thus in every sentence there is a kind of undulation of prominence which is easily perceived by the hearer. This undulation may be visualized as a wavy line with 'peaks' (denoting maxima of prominence) and Valleys' (denoting minima of prominence).
