Hello!

I was wondering if anyone can think of any English words which combine Latin and Greek roots- like 'television'? I know I know some others, but I have forgotten them for now.

Also! I have a harder one: can you think of any words in Indonesian which have roots in two different languages? Like 'dwifungsi' is from Sanskrit and Dutch?

Much thanks!
