Thank you for your solomonic latitudinarianism! OK, here's another curve
ball your way - what about proper intonation in names based on Chinese? I
showed my collegue a picture of Arisaema ciliatum var. liubanense and
asked him the proper pronunciation of the region from which it was
described. "Liu Ban?", he said. "Liu Ban?" I asked. He repeated, for my
benefit, "Liu Ban?". "Is that it, Liu Ban?", said I again. "Yes" said he,
shaking his head from side to side, "Liu Ban?".
