    Am I wrong?
    Yes. Leuc is the English variant of the Greek leuk.

    ..........that's why the common names come in so handy for the more commonly grown CP's.

    I HATE HATE HATE common names!

    In my head I pronounce things not always the same as if I were to speak them. In my head, phylla will always be filla, but of course I would pronounce it properly if I were to speak it. I always say the word EX in my head when I see a hybrid.

    I do not pronounce leuco as "luke-o". I say it as "lieuco" as in "in lieu". Fortunately it's a "dead" language so we get some freedom with the pronunciation. I was pleased when I saw that video with Rob Cantley. I was very happy to hear him speak, because I discovered then that I had been pronouncing everything properly all along. He did say "cross" instead of "ex", but other than that I say the same things.

    I thought some of those pronunciations sounded goofy. Definitely different that I've ever heard any professors say them. Maybe it's because he's British?

    I'd have to go back and re-watch it (not a bad idea!) but I don't remember anything out of the ordinary. I may have missed something.


    If you guys have not yet seen it, have a look-see here:

    Idk maybe all my professors just pronounced it a certain way...in the video it just sounded off. There was one or two where I was just like "WHOAH! what". Unless you speak Latin (well 2 or 3 of them did), then almost everyone is bound to pronounce it different. I'm not too sure about saying it like "lieuco". Think about leukocytes or leukemia. Same word, same pronunciation, just w/ a K instead of a C.

    I've only verbally spoken to one person about them, and we pronounced things differently. Oh well lol.
