When you see the written word on the computer screen, it can be a challenge to know how to pronounce it. I have heard people in the LFS pronounce things in a certain manner and I assumed it was correct. However, it often wasn't.

Here are some resources if you're curious.

Dictionary.com
Your Dictionary.com
Aquarium Corals by Eric Borneman also has phonetic pronunciations.

This could be useful information if you need to know how to look up the pronunciation of Acropora, Polychaete, thermometer, etc.
:p

oh shoot i think i was one of those people that probably have said it that way. *laffing* i never even thought about it.

it wasn't till about 2 weeks ago that i finally heard how refugium and caulerpa (sp) pronounced correctly and i had those wrong as well.

must be the mississippi boy in me or something.

Tax season is _______________ (fill in the blank). I just had to be obnoxious. However, I did find the info I provided useful. Just killin' two birds with one stone.

LOL! Well, unless you're a Copperband, Peppermint Shrimp or Berghia, then I guess you like them.
