Name of a scientist who introduced many words into english physics forums electricity wiki


Click to expand…Good catch electricity bill saudi electricity company! This thread has been tickling my memory. Your post also brings to mind examples of a famous sibling overshadowing a relative. Vincent and Theo van Gogh come to mind. While Theo was well known among contemporary art dealers, his brother was obscure aside from a few fellow painters. Theo not only popularized Vincent’s paintings, his skills as a salesman (and Vincent’s immense talent IMO) eventually led to extraordinary values for the paintings. Perhaps a similar zeitgeist electricity pick up lines existed with the Thomson siblings.

While I applaud and support searching for word origins, one must be cautious of overreach. Even if an author publishes the apparent first use of a term, creation cuts a bold swath. Cautious etymologists use verbs such as ‘derived’ , ‘popularized’, ‘collected’, ‘introduced’ (my favorite) in written English electricity jeopardy. For a modern example of creative doubt look at the lawsuits brought against popular author J.K.Rowling.

One must also remember that English spelling was only standardized within the lifetimes of some of your current readers (!). English includes so many words from so many different languages, exact origins can be nebulous. For instance ‘torque’ in English derives from Latin words for ‘twist’: torque, torquent. What word did Isaac Newton use for twist electricity transformer health risks in his Latin publications?

Not the one you were thinking of but I believe Paracelsus invented a number of terms, most of which did not catch on or survive. The f gas regulations only one I remember is Zinc which certainly survives. At any rate the first known use of the word is in his writings, and I thought, my memory was, he invented it off the top of his head, but maybe, not certainly, this is the explanation:

The name of the metal was probably electricity sound effect mp3 free download first documented by Paracelsus, a Swiss-born German alchemist, who referred to the metal as zincum or zinken in his book Liber Mineralium II, in the 16th century. [68] [70] The word is probably derived from the German zinke, and supposedly meant tooth-like, pointed or jagged (metallic zinc crystals have a needle-like appearance). [71] Zink could also imply tin-like because of its relation to German zinn meaning tin. [72] Yet another possibility is that the word is derived electricity units to kwh from the Persian word سنگ seng meaning stone. [73] The metal was also called Indian tin, tutanego, calamine, and spinter. [19] – Wikipedia

In living memory (mine) in molecular biology (as it was .becoming to be called) Jacques Monod comes to mind. In his time I felt he invented a new attention-grabbing term for every new discovery he had anything electricity generation definition to do with: allosteric, protomer (that is not a misspelling), repressor operator operon and related are some permanently fixed in terminology.

(Writing that has recalled to mind that at the time, late sixties or so, someone, I think in a letter to Nature, satirically postulated the explanon. This was a molecular entity with the property that whatever the phenomenon, the explanon would explain it. Maybe protein, certainly electricity history protean. (This word has however now been taken over by something else.)
