Lost Words of Medical Terminology (Part One)…


feeling sick

There are numerous lost words concerning the body, its functions and medical terminology, so I split them into three parts.

Thank you to Steven at http://phrontistery.info/clw4.html

Aporrhoea                                      1646 -1880
a bodily emanation; an effluvium
The evening’s revelries were followed by an unfortunate episode of aporrhoea.

Brochity                                          1623 -1678
projecting or crooked quality of teeth
His parents later regretted that they did not correct his brochity in his youth.

Cagastric                                          1662 -1753
of diseases, originating under an ill star
We no longer believe in cagastric causes for illness and deformity.

Caprizant                                          1730 -1736
of the pulse, uneven or irregular
While he hadn’t had a full-blown heart attack, his pulse was very caprizant.

Dipsopathy                                      1883 -1883
medical treatment involving abstinence from liquids
The new antibiotics he was taking required him to practice strict dipsopathy.

My sentence: The party guests avoided the aporrhoea of the man with the brochity. A doctor aided the man after checking his caprizant, to the washroom. Although the doctor’s advice was dipsopathy the man argued he was cagastric.

Can you write a sentence too?

feeling-ill
