Does anyone know somewhere online you can get the correct pronnuciation of latin names? It's something I'd quite like to make sure I get right.
Enter "botanical latin" into google search engine. That ought to turn up something.

However, don't worry about pronouncing scientific names. Botanical latin was never meant to be a spoken language, like English or French. Its meant to be read, so there isn't really any right way or wrong way to pronounce it. If anyone gives you a problem, just ignore them.

The best part about latin names is the pronounciation of the name by biologists vs botanists isn't even consistent. Give it your best shot.
