Sources of the Medical Vocabulary.
Butler, Roy F.
Journal of Medical Education, v55 n2 p128-29 Feb 1980
In an attempt to determine as precisely as possible just how much of medical vocabulary is derived from every source, the vocabulary defined in the 24th edition of "Dorland's Illustrated Medical Dictionary" was analyzed. Results indicate that medical vocabulary is relying increasingly upon the Greek and Latin languages as the sources of its terminology. (JMD)
