Science terms

Over the years, it has become clear that sciences are usually a compound noun made of the category plus the word QeD (science). The person perfoming the science is described by the same basic term plus the word tej (scientist). Compare HovQeD astronomy with Hovtej astronomer.

If the name of a science is known as xQeD then usually the according scientist is called a xtej. Unless such words were found in a canon publication, these are marked as "derived" in the following list. Sciences are usually written as one word, without a space. There are only two known exceptions for this: DI'ruj QeD and Hov leng QeD. (1)
