They're both pronounced "home-o." Latin is a phonetic language tied to the letters used in every word.

They (the prefixes) are homophones.

If that were the case, surely "homophones" would be pronounced "home-o-phones". Pretty sure it's "hommo-phones".
User avatar #38 to #17 - corundum (02/21/2013) [-]
Everyone I know pronounces it "home-o-phones."

I had a guy in my class who refused to call humans homo sapiens because he would not be called gay in any way.

Homo sapiens sapiens are people. Homo sapiens are a step down.

Homo Sapiens Sapiens are what we call humans, homo sapiens idaltu are what we call *******

we needed that definition to make clear boundary between whats human and whats an upright ape
User avatar #26 to #3 - octaviano (02/21/2013) [-]
So when we go back in time, we have a step down?
We rather took a step up.
User avatar #6 to #3 - trimageryan (02/21/2013) [-]
Nope, a step down would be Homo heidelbergensis. We're Homo Sapiens.
User avatar #11 to #6 - ancano (02/21/2013) [-]
No. we are homo sapien sapiens
homo sapiens had larger brains than we did, but weren't as intelligent because of the nourishment requirement to run their body, thus we evolved into a more efficient model which is genetically different.

**** you both, you're BOTH right
User avatar #30 to #3 - anonymoose ONLINE (02/21/2013) [-]
No. Homo sapiens is what species we are. There are two subspecies within this grouping, Homo sapiens sapiens, and Homo sapiens neanderthalensis

I hated Friends, it's like Seinfeld's unfunny cousin.

>Homo Sapiens.
>Sapiens has 6 letters
>Homo has 3, if you take out the H
>6-3=3
>You have an H and a 3
>H3
>Half Life 3 confirmed.

It's also Latin for man.
User avatar #35 to #28 - multimedia (02/21/2013) [-]
And since we use Latin to name species, homo sapiens we became. "Wise men" if my memory is correct. I don't have my Latin book on me now though, so I may be wrong.
#48 to #35 - anon (02/21/2013) [-]
I'm still doing Latin, it's right.
User avatar #47 to #35 - anormalbrony (02/21/2013) [-]
dont worry, you are correct sir, but the people who named the animals with the latin words dont decline them according to the name, so you kind of have to just translate and guess.
User avatar #39 to #35 - satrenkotheone ONLINE (02/21/2013) [-]
But... isn't it called Homo Sapiens Sapiens or something and not only Homo Sapiens?
