: 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?

:: Further searches reveal that it's a medical certificate??? OK, I need enlightened assistance.
