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.
There are four examinations.
