: : The Best Antidote : :

Students. Students are the best antidotes. Another remedy for fever. Or maybe, my fever only. I often get updated with students' new 'vocabularies' lately. And I would like to share these words with you readers.

Again, I had a gut-wrenching laugh listening to students mistakenly pronounced these few new terms for them. Last week, I had a student wrote the definition of endocrine glands as 'duck'less glands instead of 'duct'less glands.

LOL:D (..i juz dunno..kelenjar sapa pulak ada 'itik'?!?!..adoyai~)

This evening, I forced myself to go to the class though I was not fully recovered from my fever. But, I came back like I was not sick! Guess what happened during the class? I taught my students a new topic and did some revisions for their coming examinations. Throughout the class, they came out with a few newly-named terms.

1. MEOISIS: a cell division that occurs in reproductive cells

..was mistakenly pronounced as..

MAYONNAISE: a thick pale sauce made from egg yolks and oil

2. AXON: a long projection of a nerve cell

..was mistakenly pronounced as..

AXION: a brand of dish washing paste/liquid

3. MYELIN SHEATH: an insulating layer that surrounds the core of a nerve fiber

..was mistakenly pronounced as..

MITSUBISHI: a multinational manufacturer and distributor of automobiles
