The English language is one of the hardest languages for those who did not grow up natively speaking it to learn. It is famous for having more exceptions than rules and a lot of quirks that seem purely random to those who didn't grow up with it. However, some words are trickier than others. And scientific lingo poses a unique challenge. These words are often very long and have roots in other languages that can make them quite tricky. After all, Latin is a dead language. And that is where a lot of scientific jargon comes from.
Scientific jargon can be tricky to master, but people who have a love of science can always figure it out. From the long words to their interesting meanings, there is so much to digest when it comes to scientific lingo!
