How to spell ‘coronacid’ in Latin and Greek
The term “coronascid” is a common noun that has several different forms in Latin, Greek, and English.
The word, pronounced “cor-ah-dee-SID,” literally means “the virus of the dead.”
But in Latin it’s more commonly used to refer to a fungus that causes a contagious disease.
For a while, it was a popular verb, even though the verb isn’t used in the Greek language.
In fact, Latin has a completely different verb, called “corona,” that means “to fall” or “to decay.”
Corona is also used to describe a situation that is unstable or dangerous.
There are other ways to spell “coronicid,” including “corneiid” and “coronia.”
But in Greek, the word means “fungus.”
It’s an unfortunate fact that Greek is a very difficult language to learn.
It’s a mixture of different dialects and the fact that many words have their roots in ancient Greek.
And when it comes to the meaning of “coronal,” the Greek word is actually the Latin equivalent of the English “coffee cup.”
