When in doubt, go for a formal greeting — or nod and smile. That is universally understood. : )

Greek Alphabet Pronunciation

Greek

Greek letters are used in math and science, and so we think we know how they are pronounced. But while some of these will surprise you, this is how the names of the Greek letters are spoken.

Greek Alphabet Pronunciation of the Names of the Letters

Α α – alpha:  al-fah

Β β – beta:  vee-tah

Γ γ – gamma:  ghah-mah (the “gh” sounds similar to the sound of gargling in the back of your throat)

Ε ε – epsilon:  eh-psee-lon

Ζ ζ – zeta:  zee-tah

Η η – eta:  ee-tah

Ν ν – nu:  nee

Ξ ξ – xi:  ksee
