Re: Ouranosaurus (but we saw a spinosaur?)
No pronunciation help, but in "Dinosaur Impressions," Philippe Taquet, as translated by Kevin Padian, writes:
Accordingly, I had decided to name the new species _Ouranosaurus
nigeriensis_. The first term was taken from the Arab word _ourane_,
which signifies "valiant, courageous, bold." This name was given by
the Tuaregs of Niger to the sand monitor lizard.
