Research Center for Scientific Terms and Neologisms  

The Research Center for Scientific Terms and Neologisms was established under legislative Decree 4545/1966 with the name Bureau for Scientific Terms and Neologisms. According to presidential Decree 225/2003 it was renamed Research Center for Scientific Terms and Neologisms.
The research purposes and mission of the Center are the following:
1. Linguistic inspection of the neologisms of the Modern Greek Language.
2. Suggestions for replacement of foreign neologisms with Greek terms - provided that the foreign neologisms have not yet been widely adopted - and for the proper use of the Greek language.
3. Formulation in Greek of recent scientific terminology in line with the new scientific achievements.

Before being adopted scientific terminology must be accepted by the Greek scientific community. To promote consensus the Center issues the Bulletin of Scientific Terminology and Neologisms. The bulletin presents the suggestions of the Center concerning new scientific terms and neologisms in the spoken language. The Greek neologisms are listed as either accepted or erroneous. Regarding the erroneous Greek neologisms, as well as not yet broadly adopted foreign ones, the Center offers new suggestions based on the proper use of the Greek language and its word formation mechanisms.
