how to pronounce scientific names? know of any websites?
    #4482624 - 08/01/05 10:05 PM (12 years, 9 months ago)

Hi guys :ashamed: . I am very bad at pronunciation :imslow:(always been a weak point of mine ) but I'm trying to learn how to say all these scientific names correctly. Are there any websites out there that let you put in a name and then say it for you? so you can actually hear it?

I'm sorry if this is the wrong forum to post in. I Just thought scientific name subject would most pertain to this forum. Feel free to move it if needed.

Also for a semi-related topic. :thinker: I'd like to know if (again) any of you know of a website or a download that reads text for you. I find alot of interesting mycology literature. This would be very useful for me when i'm exercising or when i have trouble sleeping, ect.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.  :toast:

Take a latin/greek class heheh this is the funniest thing i have read in a hwile. Even though its not intended it made me laugh. Good for you for having the courage to ask though.

Dictionary.com has all that info

It is weird when you hear the correct pronunciation of words, especially if you have never even tried to pronounce the word before and only have a notion of it in your head. Then there are some words for species that I have never even tried to pronounce in my head. I don't talk to anybody about growing so have no need.
I was even pronouncing agar wrongly, until I say it on discovery channel.

Yeah man, when I finally heard those sound clips a few months ago, I relized how wrong I was saying everything...

If you go to download.com , type in "text to speech" in the search box. There should be a free download called "Advanced Text To Speech". If it is not there anymore, I am sure there are others when you scroll down.

I used to use it all the time when I would get a headache from reading so much.
