Noting and transcribing length[edit]

Someone wrote that length distinctions shouldn't be written or transcribed. This may make sense in Classicist texts, but from a linguistic standpoint it's nonsense. All linguistic works that discuss Greek indicate vowel length consistently. If a Classicist claims that there is a scientific consensus not to do this, they are wrong.
