Deciphering Latin and Greek words in Biology Vocabulary

Post by B10Student » Sun Apr 20, 2008 12:22 am

Do you guys know of any sites or sources that can actually break down a specific Biology/Medical Vocabulary term into its Greek and Latin counterparts so that you can memorize them?

For example, I'm looking for something that can break down the word "hydrolysis" into "hydro- : water" and "-lysis: break"

Thanks :D
