[va-bird] Re: Pronouncing "ini"

I think, too, it depends on how you prefer to place the emphasis:

AN ser EEE nee=20

or=20

an SER i NEE

would sound correct, whereas

AN ser IH nee

or=20

an SER ee NEE=20

do not sound correct.=20

Typically in four-syllable scientific names, stress is on the first and =
third, so I stand by my original opinion:

AN ser EE nee

Although, for families, I rarely place the emphasis in this manner=20
(hence, ah NAT ih DAY).

Say it how you want to say it!
