Nybakken, chairman of the Department of Classics of the State University of Iowa, for many years has taught a class in scientific Latin and Greek, giving prospective medical and professional students an opportunity to learn in a relatively painless but none-the-less effective way the rudiments of word origins and of word formation. This excellent book, "Greek and Latin in Scientific Terminology," while it is not designed specifically for medical students or physicians, contains all the information necessary for a person who wishes to explore the mysteries of scientific nomenclature and learn the ground rules under which the words have developed. For instance, few of us realize that the position of the accent on the word thymos can make it mean either a warty excrescence or the soul. Any physician or scientist interested in words and writing will welcome a book that even the novice may use as a primer.

This list of Latin and Greek words commonly used in systematic names is intended to help those unfamiliar with classical languages to understand and remember the scientific names of organisms. The binomial nomenclature used for animals and plants is largely derived from Latin and Greek words, as are some of the names used for higher taxa , such as orders and above. At the time when biologist Carl Linnaeus — published the books that are now accepted as the starting point of binomial nomenclature, Latin was used in Western Europe as the common language of science, and scientific names were in Latin or Greek: Linnaeus continued this practice. Although Latin is now largely unused except by classical scholars , or for certain purposes in botany , medicine and the Roman Catholic Church , it can still be found in scientific names. It is helpful to be able to understand the source of scientific names.
All required readings, listed in the schedule , are available online; these supplement the lectures by providing historical background on the development of scientific terminology and some points of grammar. Questions based on these readings will appear on the tests and final exam. We will make extensive use of the etymologies found in English and technical dictionaries. The Oxford English Dictionary Simpson and Weiner is the most comprehensive and accurate English dictionary available, though for quick reference I would recommend the Oxford Dictionary of English Stevenson , whose online version includes recordings of pronunciation; it is also included with Mac OS X. Haubrich is a useful reference tool for examining the origins of medical words, and is on reserve at the library.
