Aegrotat

Posted by Lotg on October 19, 2003

Further down, Christopher Moran asked a complicated question that included use of the word 'aegrotat'. What does this mean? My searches reveal that it appears to be an Academic award perhaps for a course that you may not even have completed. Although my search results have been inconsistent. Some say incompletion due to illness. Others are more general.

Does anyone know the precise meaning and what kind of word this is. Is it derived from a combination of words, some ancient base, someone's name??? Any clues?
