A recent survey has found that doctors have an even harder time finding synonyms for terms they use every day, with the results revealing that many are confused when it comes to the proper synonym for something.
In fact, over half of doctors think there are too many synonyms to choose from, while half of the doctors surveyed also thought there was too much of a mix of words to choose between.
“It’s definitely not easy to distinguish between the words you know and those you don’t know,” said Dr. James M. Nadel, chair of the department of pediatrics at Columbia University Medical Center.
“Some words have very little to do with each other, like ‘bundle,’ ‘dish,’ or ‘dryer.'”
Some of the synonyms you see on the front page of the paper that you’re trying to find on the back of the envelope are very, very confusing,” he said.
The survey of 1,000 doctors was done by the journal PLOS ONE.
More than one-third of doctors also thought the term ‘babysitter’ was confusing, while one-quarter of doctors said ‘basket’ was.”
There are just a lot of words out there, and a lot that are hard to pronounce.” “
We’ve got to get to a point where we can find those words.
There are just a lot of words out there, and a lot that are hard to pronounce.”
He suggested a new way to spell out the words: “What’s the difference between ‘dieter’ and ‘dinner?’
The answer is: It’s not that they are the same word, but it’s that they have different meanings.”
Some of these synonyms are used a lot in daily life, like “bathroom” or “furniture,” while others are used rarely or never at all, like medical supplies.
“We don’t have a good vocabulary to use in the doctor’s office,” Nadal said.
Instead, doctors should try to find the synonym they need.
“But you can’t really do that if you’re using every word.”
The survey also asked about the meaning of words like “blessed” and “thank you.”
The most commonly used synonym was “thankful,” followed by “peaceful” and then “good.”
But the survey also found that some words, like the word “happy,” are not used at all.
That could be because people do not use those words to describe their happiness or that they would be surprised to learn that people are happy when they are grateful.
“Many people think of the word ‘happy’ as a good word,” Nada said.
“That’s the way the world has been built, but you know what?
I think you might be surprised,” he added.
“People have used it a lot over the years, and they have used words like ‘happy,’ but I don’t think we can say they’re the best words.”
Instead, Nadel suggests using words like, “kind, compassionate, good, loving, and gracious.”
The American College of Pediatricians (ACP) said that the study’s results indicate that synonyms aren’t always easy to find, and that doctors need to look for words that are used frequently, but also words that can be used in different contexts, like in the context of a conversation or when people are discussing an important issue.
“Synonyms are a great way to help clarify the meaning, but they are a poor way to determine what is the correct word to use,” said ACP President James P. Lappe Jr. “As the medical profession moves forward in understanding what is medically important and what is not, we need to recognize that synonym is a poor tool.”
He added that synonomous words like”bless” and”thank you” can be confusing because they are often used in a very specific context.
The ACP said that doctors should avoid using words with a common meaning like “good” or even “love,” which are used in very specific ways.
The ACP recommends that doctors use words like:”good” and even “goods” when referring to items that have been used by people who need them most.
That way, they can find words that have the most specific meaning, like a product or a service.
“The good news is that words can be very specific in how they’re used,” Lappes said.
He added that it is not a good idea to use words that mean “good,” “happy” or anything else that could make you feel bad.
“It’s just not OK to use the word good in a conversation when there is nothing that is good about that,” Lapes said, adding that doctors also need to be careful when discussing a difficult subject, like heart disease or autism.
The American Association of Public Health Nutrition (AAPNHN) recommends doctors look for synonyms when discussing diet and exercise.
