We are also forgetting that even though scientific (Latin) language is 
supposed to unite us,  our tongues and ears are geared toward our own 
linguistic systems.  A, E, I, O, U (and sometimes) Y will definitely have 
different sounds in different languages. Not to mention the combination of 
consonants along with the vowels. Just think about the differences between 
American English and British English when it comes to pronunciations.
