Oh to pronounce O

In Illunse, pronounce o as in go or note or pole. This is as the Latin ō (o macron) and the Old English ó (long or accented o). But make the sound somewhat shorter, similar to how o is pronounced in Spanish.

By the way, the short or unaccented o in both Latin and Old English is pronounced similar to not or pond.
