Re: Cómo se dice therapod y synapsid en español?

Knowing little about the actual Latin pronunciation, I tend to suppose
that at least for the vowels it was like Spanish and Italian, which
are not very related Latin derivatives, and, as far as I know, have a
similar vowel pronunciation.
"A" and "E" as in Mandela, "I" as in Jim, "O" as in Tom, and "U" as
"OO" in Boom.

And pronunciation and writing of the words you ask is the same in
Spain and Latin America. ThÃropodes is French.
