    dunno. words used outside of latin such as names and places tend to complicate things? do you just pronounce it as you would the name, or would you latinize it?
    tatei, kenneallyi, macdonaldae, jacquelineae, macfarleni, mikei, pittopangii, leonardii, attenboroughii--a whole slew of non-latin names, do we pronounce these latinized or not? i have the tendency to pronounce them as non-latin except for their suffixes.

    jamban is not latin but rather indonesian, meaning "toilet"---so, personally, i would have pronounced the name the way an indonesian would. but that's just me.

    Good point, I suppose it's hard to say though, since both of the words used in binomial nomenclature are supposed to be in Latin grammatical form. However, I suppose this doesn't necessarily mean it has to be pronounce as such, since some of the words have no latin derivatives..

    In my head?
    flava = flah - vah (like open up and say 'aaahhh' at the doctor's)
    tatei = tat - eh
    kenneallyi = keen- ee- ally - eye
    macdonaldae = macdonald - eye
    jacquelineae = zhahckwelin - ee - eye
    macfarlenei = macfarlan - eh
    mikei = mike- ee - eye
    pitopangii = most of the time, pit - o - pang - ee. if I feel prissy the end turns from 'ee' to 'ee - eye'
    attenboroughii = a'en'bor-ee cuz I'm a yanqui as david would say haha!
    and I'm sure I'm doing jamban wrong, but zhahm- bahn. like in auto-bahn.

    I think that in a lot of cases only the person who named the plant, and some close associates, would be certain. Many scientific names are greek-based as well. As long as we know which plants we're talking about I'm good.

    I always thought the suffix "ae" was pronounced like a hard "A". I have never taken Latin courses though, so I wouldn't know.

    That would be correct.
