pronunciation of Camarasaurus
I seek some guidance regarding the preferred/"correct" pronunciation
of _Camarasaurus_. I include some quotes lifted from online sources.
option 1) Kam-ARE-a-SORE-us (or cam-R-a-saurus, i.e., heavy
emphasis on ARE)
option 2) Kam-AIRE-a-SORE-us (or kuh-MARE-uh-SAWR-us, a variant on
pronunciation of the second syllable.
option 3) KAM-ara-SORE-us (or KAM-a-ra-SAWR-us or cam`a*ra*sau"rus)
option 4) KAM-aire-a-SORE-us
option 5) all of the above
option 6) none of the above
Note that there are two issues, the major one in my mind whether the
stress is on the first versus second syllable, and the second is to
what extent the A is long (you say toe-MAY-toe, I say toe-MAAH-toe).
Off-list is fine, if this is not deemed listworthy.
