A collection of terms or words peculiar to a science or art. In all sciences, nomenclature is an object of importance; and each term should convey to the student a definite meaning. The Lavoisierian nomenclature was a valuable gift to chemistry; and anatomy has derived advantage from the labours of Barclay, Dumas, and Chaussier, who have given names to parts indicative of their situation. See Muscle. The nomenclature of pathology has required the greatest attention; and although repeated attempts have been made to improve it, the barbarous terms that disgrace it are still frequently adopted. It consists of Hebrew and Arabic terms; Greek and Latin, French, Italian, Spanish, German, English, and even Indian, African, and Mexican; often barbarously and illegitimately compounded. A want of principle in founding the technical terms of medicine is every where observable. They have been formed :-1. From colour; as Melana, Melas, Atrabilis, Leuce, Alphos, Chlorosis, Rubeola, Scarlatina, Purpura, &c. 2. From duration; as ephemeral, quotidian, tertian, and quartan, continued, and intermittent, &c. 3. From Birds, Beasts, Fishes, Insects, and Plants; as Rabies canina, Cynanche, Boulimia, Pica, Hipopyon, Elephantiasis, Urticaria, Lichen, Ichthyosis, &c. 4. From Persons or Places; as Morbus Herculeus, Facies Hippocratica, Lepra Arabum, Plica Polonica, Sudor Anglicus, Morbus Gallicus, Ignis Sancti Antonii, Chorea Sancti Viti, &c.
