Re: Pterodactylus kochi
Quoting Dinosaur George <email@example.com>:
Can anyone give me the proper pronunciation of the word "kochi"? I
have heard it pronounced two different ways.
I assume the last name "Koch" should be pronounced as in German (ch =
voiceless velar fricative as at the end of "Bach" or "loch"). The
ending -i can be pronounced according to its Latin value (IPA [i]/"ee"
as in "bee") or like English "eye", according to your preference.
