Disabling Language: Fact or Fiction?
Patterson, Jeanne Boland
Journal of Applied Rehabilitation Counseling, v19 n1 p30-32 Spr 1988
This article identifies five interrelated issues about the concept of disabling language including the evolutionary nature of disabling language and the lack of a database to support changing language patterns. Comparison of word choice in journal titles showed that the use of "disability" as a noun has declined substantially in eight years. (Author/DB)
