Quick question on the Latin / English names in sections 4 & 5 -- do you have a preference on when to use Classical Latin pronunciation and when to use English pronunciation?

I was initially thinking to use a Classical Latin pronunciation for the names listed after each plant name (i.e., "KI-trus ber-GAH-mi-a" for Citrus Bergamia) rather than an Anglicized version (like "Sih-trus Ber-GAY-mi-a") for consistency.

However, there are a number of plant family Latin names scattered throughout the normal text, and I'm wondering if you'd prefer those in a Latin pronunciation or an Anglicized one to be less jarring. For example under Benzoin, the text references "Styracaceae". Do you want those read Anglicized like "Stai-ra-kay-cee-ai", or Classical Latin ("stu-ra-kah-keh-ai")?

Thanks!

I have no preference... whichever you are most comfortable with. After all, not many people are native Latin speakers, so there is probably some debate as the "correct" way anyway.

Oops sorry :oops: There was a rush of posts, and I was mid-move, so not on top of things.
