Let me know if I=3DB4m wrong, but I never saw in a dictionary a defin=
ition o=3D
all names of Linnean system. Even when linnean nomenclature have=20
been commonly used for scientific community for more than two=20
centuries. When I=3DB4m said dictionaries do not include definitions =
linnean names, it includes names which are very known as "Homo". In=
the dictionary of the "Real Academia Espa=3DF1ola de la lengua" ("the=
dictionary" for Spanish speakers) the only definition for homo is: a =
which meants equal to (my own bad translate to English). So, Must I=
assume that most Spanish speaker do not understand when somebody=20
said Homo (referring to the genus to which humans belong) just=20
because the dictionary do not defines it in this sense?

Apologize by my bad English
