> Part of speech: noun

(TKD 9):  Three groups of words in particular are, for the most part, unrepresented: scientific terminology [...] Terms associated with the various sciences are the subject of a special study, and a report is currently being prepared.

(Lawrence, [DATE?]):  Actually, [{HolQeD}] IS canonical. It is a backfit that Marc Okrand was kind enough to provide (I think in an interview), casually acknowledging that of course this compound meant 'language science, or linguistics.' And, presumably it does open the door to geology and mathematics and many more.
