Etymologia—a new EID section added in 2005

Etymologia

Etymology is concerned with the origin of words, how they've evolved over time, and changed in form and meaning as they were translated from one language to another.  In 2005,  Emerging Infectious Diseases, added a new section, Etymologia, to the journal. Etymologia defines scientific words related to emerging infectious diseases. Since its inception, the EID journal has published 96 Etymologia.
