Index of keywords

The book of science

Tom Sharp

The main entries in this index are titles of poems that link to milestones in the chronological index. When one of these is green, it is followed by a line from the poem, which links to the poem itself. Multiple lines of the same poem appear in order of appearance.

This index does not serve as an index for scientists, sciences, or elements.

A few statements on what I include:

  1. Mainly nouns; sometimes gerunds.
  2. Almost no verb.
  3. Hardly ever an adjective unless it describes a people, country, or language.
  4. Scientists by last name only if they are mentioned in a milestone that they do not get credit for.
  5. Plurals are included under their singular forms.

A few statements on alphabetization:

  1. Initial articles “A” and “The” are ignored.
  2. Capitalization is ignored.
  3. Spaces are ignored.
  4. Prepositions are not ignored.
  5. British spellings (e.g., “colour”) are placed under their American spellings.
  6. Plurals are placed under their singulars, even for irregular plurals such as “people” and “data.”
  7. Sorry, I’m make mistakes, but bear with me; eventually, I’ll find and fix them.
