I can't speak to the first, but as for Caragounis: he agrees with
Randall that there were more vowel sounds in Koine than in modern.

I just want to confirm what I've heard on this

Did Erasmus create his pronunciation method in order
to avoid duplicate sounds with certain vowels and
diphthongs (so EI and I would not sound the same, for

Does Caragounis argue that Koine and Modern would be
pronounced the same?
