Some Latin and Greek that you might want to learn

As you probably know, modern scientific terminology is largely based on borrowings from ancient Latin and Greek. Words of Latin and Greek origin, when encountered in English texts, could lead to confusion in terms of pronunciation and grammar. In this short presentation we will address some major irregularities of Latin and Greek words in English texts, speak a bit about grammar of ancient languages and play a hat game of scientific terminology if time permits.

And remember: you should learn Latin, because in Hell nobody's going to talk to you in English.
