I am planning on recording The Fudge Family in Paris, by Thomas Moore.

https://archive.org/details/fudgefamilyinpa02moorgoog/page/n11/mode/1up

It has two short, little lines in Greek which I hope to pronounce somewhere close to the actual language. Might someone help, please? The two lines are on the page linked here.

Would you like a transcription or a recording?

Btw, I recommend this thread for pronunciation questions:

Here's an approximation of Erasmian pronunciation:

eh-GAW d'oh moh-ROHS AH-rahs eh-deh-SAH-men meh-TOH-poy

Here's the reference he's making:

While I, the fool, lifting it up, tied it upon my forehead (fool - moros - being a pun on his name)
