Re: Dinosaur Genera List corrections #145
In Mandarin Chinese, the pronunciation for "jie" would be
gee-eh (eh with a short e, NOT pronounced in the British manner "ay")
The pronunciation for Chuan is close enough... it's sort of like "Chew On"
but slid together a bit more.
HuaBei is prononounced
The "ch" is like the gutteral German "ch"
The phrase probably means "flower of the north," but I don't know the tones
so it's a bit hard to tell.
Hope that helps.
