A course in the formation of words used in science and medicine from
basic Greek and Latin roots. During the semester we gradually learn
700 Greek and Latin words which are frequent elements in scientific
vocabulary. By dictation, memorization, and analysis of actual
medical or biology terms, the student gains the basics of a highly
usable scientific vocabulary.
No previous exposure to Greek and Latin is expected or necessary.
