It is pretty advanced though, readers who aren’t familiar with words used in biology and anatomy will have a harder time understanding it.
They pretend to give a lesson of ethymology. All that translate the Greek word deinosaurus as terrible lizard are wrong. The word is the superlative of the Greek word deinos. They cite the Donnegan dictionary as a proof. But if you go at the page 44 of this book, you read : deinos, compar. deinoteros, superl. deinotetos.
It is clear that they are unable to read the Greek.
Among those they criticise is Littré the biggest French lexicologue Émile Littré. Poor Émile Littré.
An ignorant thinks he is right, a scientist seeks the truth. I stopped to read this book.
