Yeah, I agree with Bob about the pronounciation of the strain.
Also, while we're on the topic, how do you guys pronounce speicies
names with 'ae' on the end? We were having a discussion about this a
while back and we found that lots of people say them in different
ways. I'd be interested to hear what others think. Of course there
are lots of bugs that have this sound on the end, but here's an
example for people to give their opinion: 'pneumoniae'. We were
interested in the 'ae' parts of species names, not any other part so
the 'new' or 'noo' part is irrelevant. Here are the ways that people
in our department pronounce the 'ae' on species names:
new-moh-nee (or noo-moh-nee)
new-moh-nee-ay (or noo-moh-nee-ay)
new-moh-nee-ah (or noo-moh-nee-ah)
