I suspect that "equestro-" refers, not to horses, but to equestrians. As for "equestropo-", I'm puzzled (could the "-po-" come from "anthropo-"?), but as a prefix to -morphism referring to horses, something closer to the Latin word for horse, something based on "equus", perhaps, would seem to be appropriate. I've seen "equi-" used, but that doesn't seem right. Perhaps "equo-" or "equuo-" would be more in keeping with convention. 184.108.40.206 (talk) 07:37, 19 May 2014 (UTC)
There are a few things I find objectionable in the following:
- "The tendency of viewing human behaviour in terms of the behaviour of animals, analogous to anthropomorphism, which views animal behaviour in human terms"
For one, "the tendency of" seems inappropriate. Also, "viewing" is too narrow, and so is "behaviour". "In terms of" says "terms" are used, which isn't necessarily true. What anthropomorphism does isn't identified correctly.
Perhaps this might be better: "The attribution of traits associated with animals to humans or other things, as anthropomorphism attributes human traits, or humanizes, non-human things." 220.127.116.11 (talk) 07:59, 19 May 2014 (UTC)
