In Latin, how were ii and uu pronounced? I think they usually occur between a root and an affix, for instance "tuum" or "Patricii". "uu" in English borrowings is of course pronounced as either /ju:@/ (continuum) or /ju:/ (vacuum) with presumably no historical reason. I can't think of any English words with "ii" in them from Latin though. -- Tristan.
