Learn to Discern: Diagnosis

Diagnosis means to identify a disease from its symptoms and signs. It comes from the Greek 'diagignoskein' meaning to distinguish, from 'dia-' meaning through or across, and 'gignoskein' meaning to know. Gignoskein is a root for the Latin 'gnoscere' or 'noscere' meaning to come to know. Related words include gnostic, agnostic, ignore, knowledge and know.
