Re: pronunciation of saurus by a spanish speaker who also knowssome greek
Quoting Neal Romanek <firstname.lastname@example.org>:
And should Walkeri - as in Baryonyx walkeri - be spelled Valkeri,
since there really is no use of the "W" in Latin, only V and U?
The distinction between V and U is post-Classical Latin, as is the
distinction between I and J.
