Not at all. The t is just to make sure, because in French ch is sh alone,

That I replied onlist has a simple reason that probably has to do with the
listserver -- I currently don't get DML postings in any particular order.
Just today two arrived that I had sent 2 days ago. I answered to the reply by
HP Nick Pharris.

Pronounciation questions are always of great interest to the list. Remember
*Protopteryx*. Or *Nqwebasaurus*.
Aaaah yeah: Dinosaurs. If *Megalosaurus* is not related to the rest of
Megalosauridae, the latter takes the name Torvosauridae by priority, AFAIK.
