Plant Pronunciation

Ever see a latin plant name and wonder how in the world you pronounce it? I have many times. Today I found this handy little site that has an alphabetical listing of many latin names. You click on the name and it is pronounced for you. I have been clicking like crazy--only to find out I have been mispronouncing 90% of them. I think I will refer to this site often.

  1. But also remember that the 'proper' pronunciation of latin has shifted many times over the centuries, and thus there are often several 'correct' ways to say the names. Don't knock yourself too hard on it!

    That said, I should bone up on the list, myself. I have found many names that I was outright butchering!



I appreciate you taking the time and effort to leave a comment. I will try to answer any questions you have. Please note due to Blogger changing word verification so almost nobody can read it, I have had to change to no word verification and only allow registered users to comment.
