nah... English is way thougher to me

 
I can relate.
I spoke only an Austrian dialect of German when my family arrived in New York, back in 1951. English has too many "exceptions to the rules". Still, I'd love to hear a bunch of entomologists using scientific names; I bet they'd sound nothing like what I've been sounding-out in my head.

 
the Austrian way...
...is more or less how i do it: the entire Naturwissenschaft in Russia emerged in mid-1700s under almost exclusive influence of German-speaking academics/explorers and their way of thinking and doing things [still feels big time]

male Anastrangalia laetifica?
why do i have to memorize all the black ones from scratch every single time...
