In Part 1 of this lesson we explored terminology pertaining to health and health care, emphasizing the terms most useful for herbalists and others interested in natural health care. We discovered how words are formed and became familiar with some common Greek and Latin combining forms, suffixes, and prefixes. These will help us decipher the meanings of words that we will come across in the future. Armed with this knowledge, and with the help of a good dictionary, we will be able to continue expanding our vocabulary with future readings. In Part 2 of this lesson we will discuss the terminology pertaining to the naming and classification of herbs.
