Formatted abstract
This paper anlyses the four names of the Greek alphabetical letters with accent variation in Italian. For the currently proparoxytone words epsilon, upsilon and omicron, it recently emerged in academic and didactic contexts the paroxytone pronounciation, which is to be avoided for two reasons: 1) the multisecular use of proparoxytone accent for such words (èpsilon 1797, ìpsilon 1834, òmicron 1823: but these datings should be maybe anticipated to the Renaissance, at the time of the introduction of Greek alphabet by Greek teachers); 2) the non-suitability of the Latin-style stressing in such cases, since no Latin occurences of these grecisms are attested. As for the stressing of omega (whose first occurrence has been erroneously recorded as Dante’s), that is omèga (before 1553) and òmega (1954, with Latin-style accent due to a previous Latin intermediary), the option of the most ancient form is not anymore suggestable, since the use of òmega form is already spread in the scientific context.
