This post is part of the A to Z Challenge. My theme for the month is A to Z of words in English with an Arabic origin.
I loved memorizing the names of different parts of brain during my first year Anatomy class in college. Cerebrum, cerebellum and Medulla Oblongata. Or the three layers of meninges – Dura mater, Pia mater and Arachnoid. I felt they had a musical twist to it while reading it loudly, in an effort to memorize all these new words for the first time !
Guess which of those names have an Arabic connection to them?
Any interesting first day of Anatomy-dissection-class stories ?
