I guess that these scientific terms *are* pronounced differently depending 
on the surrounding language of context.

I work in both Italian and English and have most difficult with the Italian 
pronunciation of English terms.

I suspect that pronouncing scientific terms with a (church/ancient) latin 
speech synthesis system would be incorrect.
