Hellenologophobia: The Fear of Greek Terms or of Complex Scientific Terminology

Hellenologophobia is the abnormal and persistent fear of Greek terms or of complex scientific terminology.  The complexity of science intimidates some people and this may be the cause of this phobia.
A phobia is a strong, persistent fear of situations, objects, activities or persons.  The main symptom is an excessive and unreasonable desire to avoid the feared subject. Other phobia symptoms include shortness of breath, irregular heartbeat, sweating, nausea, and an overall feeling of dread.  Phobias are the most common form of anxiety disorders.
