What is yours?

Post by mimi cici on Sat Jun 09, 2012 3:51 pm

Greetings, I want to introduce my topic in here,in which we can translate scientific and literary words. Let's start
A libretto: is the text which is paired with a dramatic musical work, and it is typically written in verse. Libretti accompany operas, musicals, masques, chorales, and a wide assortment of other forms of musical performance; they are quite simply the words which pair with the music to bring a story to life. Many firms publish libretti for use by performers and theaters when productions are mounted, and it is also possible to purchase a libretto which has been designed for use by fans of the music, containing commentary on the text and the music.

Nice idea ! Smile


AB OVO (Latin,"from the egg"): This phrase refers to a narrative that starts at the beginning of the plot, and then moves chronologically through a sequence of events to the tale's conclusion. This pattern is the opposite of a tale that begins in medias res , one in which the narrative starts "in the middle of things," well into the middle of the plot, and then proceeds to explain earlier events through the characters' dialogue, memories, or flashbacks. Horace coins the phrase in his treatise, Ars Poeticae, a treatise not to be confused with the Poetics of Aristotle. Contrast with

Oxidation: is defined as the interaction between oxygen molecules and all the different substances they may contact, from metal to living tissue. Technically, however, with the discovery of electrons, oxidation came to be more precisely defined as the loss of at least one electron when two or more substances interact. Those substances may or may not include oxygen.

Outsourcing:is the act of one company contracting with another company to provide services that might otherwise be performed by in-house employees. Often the tasks that are outsourced could be performed by the company itself, but in many cases there are financial advantages that come from outsourcing. Many large companies now outsource jobs such as call center services, e-mail services, and payroll. These jobs are handled by separate companies that specialize in each service, and are often located overseas.

Mold: is a type of fungus that grows on plants and fibers and is most often associated with damp, musty locations such as bathrooms, basements and attics. Mold travels through the air as tiny spores which like to make their home in wet areas, where they will breed. If mold is spotted, it's best to nip it in the bud immediately lest it spread to other areas. It's also a good indication of a moisture problem, which should be dealt with as soon as possible.

A lexophile: is a lover of words. Other words have been coined to describe people who are fascinated by words and language; logophile is another example of a word which might be used to the same effect. Whatever one calls them, lovers of words can sometimes turn their interest into a career in a field such as dictionary editing, while others may take up the study of words and compilation of interesting word lists as a hobby.

I like the idea!
Here an other one
PICO:(P) is a prefix in the metric system denoting a factor of 0.000 000 000 001.
It is derived from the Italian piccolo, meaning small, this was one of the original 12 prefixes defined in 1960 when the International System of Units was established.

Sandblasting: is a general term used to describe the act of propelling very fine bits of material at high-velocity to clean or etch a surface. Sand used to be the most commonly used material, but since the lung disease silicosis is caused by extended inhalation of the dust created by sand, other materials are now used in its place. Any small, relatively uniform particles will work, such as steel grit, copper slag, walnut shells, powdered abrasives, even bits of coconut shell. Due to the dangers of inhaling dust during the process, sandblasting is carefully controlled, using an alternate air supply, protective wear, and proper ventilation.

Impedance:In electrical engineering, impedance measures how easily a circuit conducts current when a voltage runs through it. Measured in ohms, impedance is a way of telling you how much of the voltage introduced at one end will really make it to the other end. Impedance depends on other qualities of electricity, such as resistance, reactance, inductance, and capacitance.
