Presentation Transcript
oedipus rex
Oedipus Rex!
  • Before we do anything else, let’s clear up the pronunciation of O-E-D-I-P-U-S.No literary name is more commonly mispronounced that this one. Americans, in particular, seem to reverse the first two letters, making oe sound like eo in leopard and jeopardy: an “eh” sound
  • The correct pronunciation is a long e, as in Phoenix and Phoebe. The ancient Greek state of Boeotia is pronounced bee-OH-shee-ah, the god of wine is Oenus, and Oedipus is pronounced EE-deh-pus.
