There are two strands of Latin pronunciation: the classical and the ecclesiastical. "Har-MON-i-key" is classical; "har-MON-i-kay" is ecclesiastical. The ecclesiastical is older; the classical is post Reformation.

P.S. Notice, I didn't hyphenate after a linking verb.

P.S. That should read CUM GRANO SALIS. We need the ablative case after CUM.


Which latin phrase was first used in 1588 and then again in the year 1759
