Even contemporary classicists are embarrassingly inept at correctly pronouncing Anglicized Greek and Latin. (In fact, most don't even pronounce the ancient languages correctly or consistently.)

Rare archaic idosyncrasies notwithstanding, Walker's two-centuries-old guide is as reliable as thorough.
