But in French it comes out "Rex de Tyrannosaurus", according to my
computer. And I really wonder what it would look like if transliterated
into Chinese characters.
At least one book on dinosaurs had one page with a paleontological report
written in Chinese characters, and clearly visible were the Latin
*Tyrannosaurus rex*....and the sidebar explained that the names do not
change, no matter what language is used.
