About the Book


This book aims to provide education and learning experience to students, teachers, researchers, and professionals interested in enhancing their knowledge on Science. It is written in English language. It is divided in 4 parts to cover basic aspects of learning scientific terms through rules of English grammar and word-formation. Science terms focus on ‘etymological aspect of word’ i.e. ‘origin and history of language’ through which it has been derived. The book contains “Thesaurus” for major scientific sub-disciplines like mathematics, chemistry, physics, biology, medical science, pharmacy, earth science and biotechnology. It covers basic “vocabulary of science”, which is the key to terminology for comprehensive list of words borrowed in English from foreign languages (mainly Latin, Greek and French). A structured approach is used by the author in describing terms such that they outline important scientific data with definition, concepts and application for a professional scientist, doctor or engineer to use it as ideal ‘reference book’ in electronic or print medium. It stresses on importance of technical writing, structure of lab reports and use of computers (information technology) in later parts.

Fundamental skills in scientific communication, as the name suggests, focus on enhancing linguistic skills in English language for professional communication and higher learning. English communication skills are absolutely necessary for teachers and scientific professionals.
