    In more common words with Caeno, as in 'Caenozoic', I say /sinəʊ /

    That's horrible. I'd like to, I'll have to know why.

    My dictionary give me this: 'Caenozoic' /,si:nə'zəuik/

    The dictionary is not only going to ruin me, but it's going to ruin anyone who is misguided by it.

    Hopefully I will fight back with your support.
