This word is used in France to express any change which supervenes; for example, in the expression of the countenance or in the structure of an organ or in the nature of fluids excreted. Alteration is also used in an entirely different sense, to express intense thirst in disease. In this case its etymology is different. It comes from haleter, and was formerly written haleteration.
