The body parts radical, pronunciation

Posted by Polugaevsky August 3, 2013 in the Group General Discussion.

The radical frequently attaches to characters denoting body parts. In such cases, it represents 肉. My question is, if a Chinese student in China asks his teacher what the radical is for such a character, is it incorrect for the teacher to say "yue"? Are both "rou" and "yue" correct? Is it "yue" pronounced "rou" in these special cases, or is it no longer "yue" at all?
