About this book

Modern languages borrowed not only the roots, but also prefixes, suffixes and whole words from Greek and Latin. This dictionary of Greek and Latin word constituents lists thousands of these constituents, together with examples of their use in modern English, French, German, Dutch, Italian and Spanish, and often their etymology.

It will be invaluable to both teachers and students of translation and interpretation. Specialists and students in the fields of medicine, astronomy, physics, chemistry and biology will also find this an indispensible tool.
