Lets see if I get this right!
*Penelopognathus* (pen-el-uh-pog-NAY-thus)? "Penelops (wild duck) jaw."
This brings up a question: If the g in Gnatho- (prefix) is silent, then why
pronounce it in the suffix (-gnathus)?
A prime example being *Compsognathus*. Although I believe the consensus on
*Compsognathus* is, "Pronounce it however you like, as long as we know what
you're talking about."
By-the-by, does anyone happen to know how Mr. (or is it Dr.) Weishampel
pronounces his last name?
