Re: Cómo se dice therapod y synapsid en español?

"I recall from studying Latin for ten minutes back in the 80s that
there had been a movement to reform Latin translation back in the 30s,
removing soft "g"s and "c"s, and so on. I was taught this, so that I
annoy every biologist I speak to."

I can appreciate the frustration all around . . .

What's the deal with (ancient) Greek g's? How the hell is "Gigantes"
really supposed to be pronounced, and what's the governing rule?
