Re: Cómo se dice therapod y synapsid en español?

I solved my mystery. Someone had pointed me to an article written in French, and I also did not realize that it was not Spanish. The two languages are pretty similar - especially when discussing science.

It's like David said:

I gathered that when I read his post.

I was going by a memory of phonetic pronunciation, hence my
recommending that one check a site where it would be correct.

I do have to wonder if speakers of other languages have arguments
about the correct (i.e. etymological) pronunciation of Latinate terms
as we English-speakers do. Obviously there's no real standard between
languages . . . which I suppose is an argument against having them
within a language.
