Years ago, I found a book in a used-book store that sounds like more or less what you're looking for, if it's still available anywhere: _Greek and Latin in Scientific Terminology_ by Oscar E. Nybakken, published in 1959 by the Iowa State University Press. It doesn't seem to have an ISBN. -- languages of Kolagia---> +---<>--- Thryomanes /"If all Printers were determin'd not to print any (Herman Miller) / thing till they were sure it would offend no body, moc.oi @ rellimh <-/ there would be very little printed." -Ben Franklin
