Not at all. The t is just to make sure, because in French ch is sh alone, 
without t.

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.
