World's quickest advanced apologetics question


How does one correctly pronounce kecharitomene?

See, I told you it was quick. You either know the answer or you don’t. Sadly, I don’t. :frowning:


I can help! I’m learning Modern Greek, and the pronunciation is the same.

It’s spelled Κεχαριτώμενη and it’s pronounced “keh-har-ee-TOE-men-ee.” On the second syllable you really want to emphasize the “h” sound, so you have to make it with the back of your throat. It sounds a lot like the “-ch” in “Bach.”

Hope that helps!

Thank you both!


Oh. I was going to say that it’s pronounced just as it’s spelled. But their answers are better. Good.
