[quote:Karlos:MV8yMDE2NjkwXzMzODg4MDk5XzlBOEM0M0Ux] [quote:2012Portal:MV8yMDE2NjkwXzMzODg3NzQ1XzdCQjg3NzU0] Now, totally off-topic, but related- Why is a meteorologist called as such? I mean, "meteor" means, well an meteor - "[i]A meteor is the visible path of a meteoroid that has entered the Earth's atmosphere.[/i]" Sauce: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Meteoroid and the meaning of "ologist" - "[i]One who studies a subject[/i]" Sauce: http://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/-ologist Then how to you get this, "meteorologist" - "[i]A meteorologist is an individual with specialized education who uses scientific principles to explain, understand, observe or forecast the earth's atmospheric phenomena and/or how the atmosphere affects the earth and life on the planet.[/i]" Special Sauce: http://weather.about.com/od/weatherfaqs/f/meteorologist.htm [/quote] The word 'meteor' used to mean any atmospheric phenomenon - and there were different classes of 'meteors' Rain and snow, for example, were 'aqueous meteors' Rainbows, sundogs, etc. were 'luminous meteors' And IIRC, shooting-star meteors were originally known as 'igneous meteors' [/quote]
