Labouring under Linguistic Delusions: The Impact of Linguistic Factors in International Studies of Preterm Labour.
Alexander, Sophie; Slater, Catherine
Language and Communication, v7 n2 p179-85 1987
Focuses on the subject of preterm labor in hospitals in English- and French-speaking countries. The findings presented in this study undermine the widely held view that medical conditions can always be defined in objective scientific terms and that the words used to refer to them in different languages are labels that can be put into one-to-one correspondence.
