Re: pronunciation of chrysographes
Tom: I don't mean to seem argumentative BUT according to "Pronunciation of
Iris Names", page 509, "Garden Irises," the pronunciation is given as
(cry-so-GRAH-feez). I would tend to find this more acceptable since the word
means "gold writing" (referring to the gold colored blaze on the falls) the
emphasis should be placed on the "writing."
