Can someone help me get started with this? If you were to break down the terms, "cervical", "mastoid", and "ethmoid"; how might those word parts look? What would be the definitions for each word part?

I am not understanding what break down means?

    Many words, especially scientific terms, come the ancient Greek or Latin languages. To break down a word, you find out what the different parts mean. For instance, "cervical" comes from the Latin cervic, meaning "neck."

    Look the other words up in a dictionary to find their origin or etymology.
