Default Re: Scientific Nomenclature

Seriously...the "h" in "Hyla" is mute, it doesnīt exist as far as pronunciation goes. And the "y" is not "i" (well, for us it is, but not for you) as in "high", itīs "i" as in "it" or "ee".

You anglicize latin words waaaaaay too much, guys xD I understand itīs hard to change from a germanic language to a latin one, but i think the "latin" (or as close as we can manage) pronunciation should be respected, after all, the words are latin. I believe a word should be pronounced following the rules of the language it belongs to...although admittedly, itīs not easy.
