One question: Will we use Latin names in classification or Cherokee? For Example: ᎦᎾᏝᎢ or Animalia?

response[ᎦᏁᏟᏴᏓ ᎰᏪᎸᎦ]

I think it's appropriate to use Latin letters for the Latin scientific names because (1) Latin is a foreign language and (2) it is difficult, if not impossible, to convey precisely the Latin sounds with the Cherokee syllabary (3) it is customary in all languages to use Latin for scientific classification of plants and animals. --Aaron Walden 13:48, 10 February 2006 (UTC)
