help-correia-araujoi

What a name.! 'correia-araujoi'its been driving me mad [ only a short trip in my case]I'v been trying to find out the meaning or origin of correia-araujoi as found in so many species of broms. I found out that correia is a Portuguese surname meaning leather strap but have no idea if its relevant to the makeup of correia-araujoi, any help would be gratefully appreciated, and might stop an old bloke from going mad.

Thanks Mike [what a fantastic forum]

Hi Mike,

I asked the same question a while back...have a look at the link, then scroll down to see the second post from Lisa, unfortunately I cannot access her link now...maybe she'll be able to reload it.

Cheers, Andrew.

Hi Guys

Also for those interested there is an interesting article on F.C.B.S under Uncle Derek Says, titled 'Is Neoregelia correia-araujoi a natural hybrid ?

Also printed in Qld. Journal Bromeliaceae, Vol. XLI-4,July/August 2007.

Google araujoi, gets you direct to U.D Says article.

I'll see if I can post this without making such a mess with typos like above! (And link IS dead, and I was not drinking!)

I pronounce it like: core-ray-a a-rah-joy

I don't know why that link is broken, but here's the chart again (link below). On p. 14, for Aechmea correia-araujoi it says: "for well-known collector & co-discoverer of plant (with Burle-Marx)-- Luiz Knud Correia de Araujo."

As to pronunciation, I tend to go with co-RAY-ah ah-ROW-zho-eye (ROW rhyming with how now brown cow, etc. and zh like the z sound in "azure" or Zsa Zsa Gabor). That's about as good as I can do in writing, but I may be wrong. Maybe there are some Brazilians in lurkdom who can help with this?

Lots of Portuguese descendants in my area, so I know the first part is co-RAY-ah, but then I put a French twist on the last part: ah-row-ZSWAH, the 'zs' sound matching the 's' in measure, or pleasure. For the 'oi', think of 'Joie de vivre', or 'bourgeois', that's where I got it. Hey, I'm creative. ; ) Lisa's version is probably more in compliance with latin binomial rules, separating the two vowels.

Hi Mike, glad you came over? this is fun, I thought the J might be like H, as in when Jesus, is said hey-zuess, or Y like the J in Juanita, so it could be Co-ray-a a-row-yoi, or Co-ray-a a-row-hoi? maybe? he he
