Subject: Pronunciation of Arcite
The instructor of my Chaucer course, B. J. Whiting, pronounced the C in
Arcite as a sibilant; so did his younger colleague, William Alfred.
I've followed their example. But the actors in the current Stratford
Festival production of *TNK* make the C hard: ArKite. Ideas about this
from the list? Reliable sources of info?
