Title: Diversification of English Medical Terminology: social and historical determinants

Abstract:

The present article focuses on English medical terminology and its easily noticeable division into formal and informal terms. Numerous factors which may account for the observed diversification are discussed. The dichotomy for¬mality-informality, however, seems to be related primarily to the history of the English language. Informal terms are predominantly of Anglo-Saxon, French, Germanic or Scandinavian origins, while formal terms are mainly borrowings from Latin and Greek.
