There have been several calls in recent years for a more exact use than is customary of certain terms commonly used in health and medicine. Probably the best example of such a call in Britain is that made by R. G. Mitchell, the editor of 'Developmental Medicine and Child Neurology'. In 1973 he

drew attention to some of the very practical reasons why doctors should devote considerable care to the way they employ the many semi-technical terms which they hold in commoon with other health professionals.
