Speaking of which, for someone who talks about _Brachiosaurus brancai_
a lot, I sure such as pronouncing it. I've been saying either
"brank-eye" or "brank-ee-eye", but given that the name honours Branca,
I assume that something more like "branka-eye" would be correct? Can
anyone help me out?
(And a plea to all of you who publish new names: PLEASE include a
suggested pronunciation in the systematic palaeontology. Thanks to
Jerry for doing this with _Suuwassea_ -- one of the few dinosaur
names that there is no excuse for mispronouncing!)
