      The number of retards who believe that traditional English pronunciation of Latin is wrong because it is not the reconstructed classical pronunciation makes me lose hope in humanity.

    that's how the ancient Greeks pronounced scythian

      derp

      Greek: Σκύθης (el) m (Skýthis)
      Ancient: Σκύθης m (Skúthēs), Σκύθαινα f (Skúthaina)

      When a word came into English from Greek, it was first Latinized, and then the pronunciation follows the traditional English pronunciation of Latin. So the Greek pronunciation does not matter.

        so the original Latin pronunciation has a hard c in it too

        you are using church Latin, more power to you I guess but how many other words do you use that for?

        Etymology
        From Ancient Greek Σκυθία (Skuthía).

        Pronunciation
        Edit
        (Classical) IPA(key): /ˈsky.tʰi.a/, [ˈs̠kʏt̪ʰiä]
        (Ecclesiastical) IPA(key): /ˈʃi.ti.a/, [ˈʃiːt̪iä]

        truly I would love to see your source for how the word Scythian entered the English language

          >sc before a front vowel was pronounced /ss/, and degeminated to /s/.

            how about "Sch" as in Schithia from the original Latin of the Declaration of Arbroath then?

            sch sounds like a hard c sound to me

            "Scimus, Sanctissime Pater et Domine, et ex antiquorum gestis et libris Colligimus quod inter Ceteras naciones egregias nostra scilicet Scottorum nacio multis preconijs fuerit insignita, que de Maiori Schithia per Mare tirenium et Columpnas Herculis transiens et in Hispania inter ferocissimas gentes per multa temporum curricula Residens a nullis quantumcumque barbaricis poterat allicubi gentibus subiugari."

              That would be a hard 'c' sound if read in the English pronunciation, but that isn't the spelling that was brought into English.

                Perhaps there are examples of it being spelled that way in an English text prior to the standardization of spelling, though. I don't know.

                so there are multiple ways to spell scythia in Latin

                how many thousands of years have people been arguing over the correct pronounciation of this ethnonym?

                The only spelling that's relevant is how it's spelled in English, and we have taken the Latinized form Scythian, and following the English pronunciation of Latin, which determines how such Latinized terms are pronounced, it is pronounced with just /s/ at the beginning, and the 'c' being silent. I don't think anyone has cared to argue much about it until the last century or so, as they would have deferred to English convention rather than turn the language into an archeological project.

                when I was younger and found out about the Scythians from AOE2 I pronounced them like scythe and thought they used scythes.

                now I know better and that they are Scots also from AOE2.

              There is also the English word schism, pronounced 'sizm'

    The Greeks, who first described them, called them the Skithoi, yes? Scythian with the C making an S sound is ecclesiastic Latin from after the time when the Scythians had already gone extinct.

        how many Greek words in English do you deliberately mispronounce?

        moreover, it is easier for English to correctly pronounce Scythian because the Scottish directly to their north have the same hard c sound.

        Deal with it.
