In Latin and Greek derived words, why doesn’t the H palatalize the C? Why is there even an H when it has absolutely no effect on the pronunciation? Why aren’t Deinosuchus and saurischians pronounced deinosutjus/Deinosutʃus (ˌdaɪnəˈsuːtʃəs or ˌdaɪnəˈsjuːtʃəs) and saurishians (sauriʃians), and why isn’t saurischia pronounced sauriʃia, (/sɔːˈrɪʃiə/)? Eschar should be Eshar (Eʃar).
Carcharodon could be Carxarodon as voiceless velar fricative or better Cark͡xarodon with a voiceless velar affricate.
Hipparchus or hipparchicus – why not hippartjicus/Hippartʃicus?
Guttural CH as in Greek letter chi or German? – how about deinosuΧus? Choreography could be Χoreography. ˌdaɪnəˈsjuːΧəs
Voiceless uvular fricative: Yuck, it’s muck should be Yuχ, it’s muχ! Why isn’t “ck” uvular fricative? I’m not going to mention the four-letter word as in “Thank you so fiχen much!” Voiceless uvular trill might be better for the “ck.”
What’s more yuχy than milk?
Why isn’t Détente pronounced De-ten-tay? French is a Spanish like language!
Why are cup and concur not Qup and conqur?
How could there not be a letter k in Latin or Gaelic?
