I have never been sure how to pronounce the word "chimera". I've looked it up now, but not until after I read this instalment, in which I have mispronounced it (sorry). I've only ever seen it written down, you see.
I said it like kim-err-a. Wikipedia says this:
"the 'ch' is a 'k' sound, the 'i' is a long 'i' as in 'bike', and the 'a' at the end is a short sound like the 'a' in 'stella' or 'bella'. the 2nd syllable is stressed. so it's 'ky-mee-ra'."
