I "think" that the ICZN >may< be trying to root out problems they are
having, not with Latin or Greek, but with Latin-izing or Greek-ing
such words as Mongolian place names, Chinese emporors, or Australian
Aboriginal place-names, and having the professionals in the field
seemingly needing to know enough Mongolian, Manchurian, or
Aborginanal(?) to know whether these would be male or female names and
thus how to treat them when Greek-ing and Latin-izing are applied to
Is "Minmi" a male or female gender?
