In chemists' speak it's гидра́ргирум (gidrárgirum), not хидра́ргирум (xidrárgirum). Traditionally all hydro-, hydra- words have "г" (g), even if some people would pronounce /ɣ/ or /x/, imitating Latin, like in го́мо са́пиенс (gómo sápijens). Suggesting to move to гидра́ргирум (gidrárgirum). --Anatoli (обсудить/вклад) 02:52, 16 October 2013 (UTC)

See also Talk:хидраргирум. I agree with Infovarius that "гидраргирум" is more correct but it must still be a word, transliteration of "hydrargyrum". (The proper and a more common word for mercury is ртуть (rtutʹ)). Moved to гидраргирум. Sorry for any confusion, closing own rfv.--Anatoli (обсудить/вклад) 03:15, 16 October 2013 (UTC)
