    lowii
    attenboroughii
    argentii
    belii
    copelandii
    kerrii
    klossii
    lamii
    pitopangii
    smilesii
    thorelii
    veitchii
    vieillardii
    vogelii

    At 6min he pronounces it the way that I am used to saying it. I'm not really sure who else I would ask if Robert Cantley himself were to correct me while I was shopping at his nursery lol.

    But yeah his hybrids are wicked!

    Yeah, take it from a kid who did a dime in Catholic school, you're right. The flip side though,, was that taking Latin was like having crib notes in college. Cmon, foramen magnum, for example, simply means a "big hole." No imagination there. Oh, and it's octopuses, not "octopi" -- bad Latin . . .

    What could be more better?

Then there's some real 'out-there' pronunciations that are pretty impressive...
    Sound's like a pretty fun competition to have at a CP Meeting.

    So, evidently everyone is excited... about hijacking homeboy's thread LOL.

    This pronunciation is kids stuff. How in Hades do you pronounce Aristolochioides?
    I hate spelling it as much as the 3 or 4 pronunciations I have rambling in my head.
    Good growing, Jack
