    Pronunciation of a plant's latin name can be almost as bad as the spelling. The following website at the University of Connecticut not only has a good plant database with pictures, but also gives you the option of letting you hear how the scientific (latin) name is pronounced.

    Enjoy... it's kind of fun.

    QUICKEST SPELL CHECK ON A COMPUTER

    If u have the google or any other search toolbar type in the word there if its right u will get sites if its wrong it will be like "where u looking for_________" and thats the correct spelling worked everytime i needed it there probably are few words it would mess up but barely

    Oneandonlyjojo, I thought that I was the only one that did that with Google. However, since there are a lot of people who spell things incorrectly on webpages, Google will also return these as well.

    Google didn't have any suggestions for "fercinthia", but for "versinthia" it returned one hit, because Versinthia is the name of a golden fairie. I bet DowntoearthLLC wasn't trying to look up the name of a fairie, heh heh. But at least we can put this info into our little black book of worthless facts.
