Excerpt from North American Geology and Pal?ontology: For the Use of Amateurs, Students, and Scientists

A general knowledge of Geology is probably of greater importance to the people of the United States than a like amount of information in any other department of natural science; but every' one will admit the state of learning in this branch is not of a very high grade. There is a common complaint among well-informed people who have given Geology no special study that the language used is technical, the names long, difficult to understand, and not unfrequently bear upon their face the evidence of affectation, as if, those coining, the words had attempted to make them as obscure as possible. It is a fact, however, that technical names are absolutely essential to a correct understanding of every branch of Natural History; and when the system of nomenclature is once learned the names are readily understood, and much more easily remembered, than the arbitrary names of individual things possibly can be. In this work an effort has been made to popularize the rules of nomenclature, and to define the technical words in the text or in the Glossary.
