In Response To: Picky Post Of The Day! (Joe Loach)
Joe, I've never had any formal training in Latin, but I've tended to find that I usually get the pronounciations well enough to be understood by others who know the PROPER names of species, rather than just Common Names.
My attempt at your example would be His-tree-on-i-caah.
Another Question for others to ponder...I've heard both used.....is it......
Bow-tee-aah (my version), or Bow-shee-aah (which I've heard said in my LFS recently).
