English to Czech translations [PRO] Science - Botany / trees
English term or phrase:bonsai
Please advise, what is the right Czech pronunciation of the word "bonsai"? Is it pronounced with S [bon-Sai], or with Z - [bon-Zai]? Thanks in advance.
There is a rule in Czech that names transcribed from Japanese respect the letters in pronunciation, too. I admit I didn't know this rule so I congratulate Veronika on her answer even though she justified it differently.
