Abstract: 

This paper compares examples of mathematical nomenclature in Spanish and English to identify similarities and differences in their morphology and etymology, as well as identifying whether the mathematical nomenclature is a word for word translation from one language to the other. The purpose of this research is to identify and analyze words that could present some difficulties for bilingual students, as well as bringing educator’s attention to language diversity and equity in classrooms.
