On Abolishing "Death": An Etymological Note.
Shneidman, Edwin S.
Suicide and Life-Threatening Behavior, v13 n3 p176-78 Fall 1983
Makes a distinction between two uses of the word "death," specifically, your death (the death of the other) and my death (the death of the self). Suggests the word "omega" to allude to that nonevent (the cessation of the self) now routinely spoken of as "my death." (JAC)
