Any rap with the line "I'm bustin' out like Daniel Wallace" will bring a smile. On the other hand, they're using the apostate lah-gahs pronunciation, and I was taught with low-gos :p

Not only that, but the apostatate koy-nay pronunciation as well. The correct pronunciation is kee-ne. And the correct pronunciation, unless I miss your emphasis on the last syllable, is not low-gos, but low-gose, as in ghost. :cool:

You see now, Ben; if you hung around in the better interwebs sites (http://bibchr.blogspot.com/2008/12/all-things-are-better-in-koin-video.html), you'd have known about this last December, and had a merrier Christmas. I think we've learned a valuable lesson here. ;)
Amen! on showing some love for the Machen-type pronunciation of omicron. It's "o" like "vote"! Not weak-ankled "o" like "got"!

It's actually how native Greeks pronounce it, and how native Greeks have been pronouncing it for more than two thousand years. :rolleyes:
