Re: Aussiedraco, new Australian pteranodontoid pterosaur
You must really hate English place names then (ie. Worcester,
Greenwich, Gloucester, etc)
I do. :-)
Over here, pronunciations that diverge that far* from the spelling would
be considered part of the local dialect and wouldn't enter into the
standardized form of the language. Nobody pronounces _Wien_ (Vienna) as
if it were spelled _Wern_, except the Viennese, and that only when they
speak their dialect.
* "Wooster", "Grennich", "Gloster", right?
