Deity, love, punishment, rage, and mythonyms from head to toes. A brief history of some medical terms

Adrian Naznean

Correspondence should be addressed to: Adrian Naznean

Abstract:

Although it is undoubtful that today’s Medical English is rooted in Greek and Latin, it is particularly interesting that figures from Greek mythology are the roots of words to describe conditions, body parts, feelings, substances, etc. While there are numerous medical terms that are derived from the names of Greek mythological figures, this paper will only investigate words ranging from A to H and will try to justify the relationship between the concepts and the choice of terminology.

Keywords: deity, gods, goddesses, Greek mythology, medical mythonymy
