  1. Not that this would ultimately alter the meaning, but a more accurate etymology, I believe, would be ἄζωος/azoos (without life, lifeless)+σπερμα (seeds, sperm). ἄζωος is formed from α (=(privative) +ζωός/zoos(=living, with life), which is the adjective from noun ζωή/zoe(=life). Not to mention the suffix -ία/ia (the condition of having...). So that azoospermia would actually be formed by ἄζωος+σπερμα+ία = the condition of having (-ia) lifeless (azoos) sperm (sperma).
