A Way with Words

Book

Language is critical in shaping and reflecting our thoughts, beliefs, feelings and concepts. The language customarily used to denote disabling conditions has been condemnatory, judgmental or couched in medical jargon. The book is designed to encourage people to think before they write or speak. Also, it provides guidelines to expand on ideas and provide terminology that avoids judgments and euphemisms. It gives acceptable alternatives to words which need "updating". Keyword: Attitudes
