>The name is _Tsintaosaurus_. No "g" (as in Lessem 1992).
>>And who or what is Tsin(g)tao?
>Tsintao is a town in Shandong Province, China, near the type locality.
It is also a brand of Chinese beer, but I think the town is the likelier
Anyway, I gather the Chinese pronunciation of "Tsintao" is something like
"Chin-dau", the "dau" part rhyming with "how". So should we say
"Chindausaurus" or pretent that "Tsintao" is a Greek word and pronounce it
