Here in Italy we use that phrase during the rosary.
>the emphasis of the words are DOmine ad ADjuvandum me fesTIna, > correct? Or is it adjuVANdum?
This is the way I utter it /'dOmine ad adju'vandum mE fe'stina/, that is the latter hyposteses. I've heard there are people that pronounce Latin in a different way I do. Italian classical pronounciation is based on clerical Latin, thus we have 'c' and 'g' uttered as /tS/ and /dZ/ before 'e' and 'i', ti+vowel as /tsj/, ae and oe as /E/, sc + e or i as /S/. AND YOU?
