Philology Matters


The article analyzes the terminology in the field of medicine. The regulation of medical terminology is of great importance for mutual understanding of specialists, training the scientific and medical personnel, publication of scientific and reference literature, planning and accounting in the field of health, developing scientific relations with foreign specialists, obtaining and exchanging information, and computerization of medicine. The purpose of standardization of medical terminology is to systematize and clarify the meaning of terms, give logical coherence to the language of medicine, analyze and select the optimal forms of terms. Many features of medical terminology are due to the history of its formation and development. Medicine is one of the most ancient fields of human knowledge, and one of the most interesting features of medical terminology is that many terms still retain to some extent the character that was attributed to the names in early times.
