I am at a total loss here... I am pretty sure I know how to provide the etymology for each term, but can't for the life of me figure where each term should be placed as far as the "kind" of term it is such as scientific, history, mathematical, etc. Please Help!

  • English -

    The kind of term refers to the subject or discipline in which this word is usually used. Some of these are obvious -- hypothesis (science), Marxist (political science or economics).

    Others can pertain to several fields. Vector is used in math, physics, and biology, among other fields.
