Re: Cómo se dice ther[o]pod y synapsid e
That's an actual dialectical difference. Not sure how it's evolved, and I
suspect there's some drift going on in more than one place. I guess it
could confuse someone learning English! nucular vs nuclear. The former
pronunciation is particularly likely to be used in biology, to refer to the
nucleus of a cell, and there it's confused me.

" not a connection - just that the mispronounciation "new killer" is a
functional name that makes sense (at all)...unlike another
mispronounciation I've heard: "nu kea lurrr"."
