Quantum redactiones paginae "Disputatio Usoris:Wimpus~lawiki" differant

:Dear, Kohlins, I am on holiday right now, but will be back on saterday. Based on the Greek derivation from leukos and haima, the form leuchaemia (in Latin) would be preferred. I have a few sources that explicitely prefer ''leuchaemia'' and disapprove of ''leukaemia'' or ''leucaemia''. I can check these sources when I get back and can give you a more extensive answer. But please be aware, that numerous leading medical dictionaries still prefer leukaemia and/or leucaemia, despite the 'fact' that Virchow erred, as the corrupted form is more common. With kind regards, [[Usor:Wimpus|Wimpus]] ([[Disputatio Usoris:Wimpus|disputatio]]) 21:35, 12 Augusti 2014 (UTC)
::Dear Kohlins, are you the same Kohlins as the Kohlins on the Hungarian wikipedia page? I saw that you've added a lot of Latin names for diseases. Well done! Do you use a specific source, or do you translate specific terms to Latin? A few terms in medical Latin are utter non-sense. I can spot on the Hungarian wikipedia such terms like lymphaticus = frantic, insane, panic-struck (and not 'related to lymph'), thyroideus = doorlike (and not 'shield-like') or choroideus (dancelike, not 'like a membrane (that encloses the fetus'). These terms are actually approved by international official committees. With kind regards, [[Usor:Wimpus|Wimpus]] ([[Disputatio Usoris:Wimpus|disputatio]]) 22:26, 12 Augusti 2014 (UTC)

''Lateinisch-Deutsches Wörterbuch für Medicin und Naturwissenschaften.'' Berlin: Verlag Hermann Peters.</ref> can also be found in German. When Greek ''k'' (κ), the Romans used most of the time ''c''.<ref name="Kossmann1903"/> The letter ''k'' is in classical Latin is quite uncommon, with approximately 10 words in existence containing the letter ''k''.<ref name="Lewis & Short">Lewis, C.T. & Short, C.

:::The coinage of Virchow seems to neglect the general rule in Ancient Greek that when a ''k'' (κ) and ''h'' (actually a [[spiritus asper]]) collide, they form a new letter, i.e. the Greek letter [[chi]] (χ) ,<ref name="Kluyver1923">Kluyver, A.

In Modern Greek it is also written as ''leuchaimia'' (λευχαιμἰα) <ref name="Divry1982">Divry, G.C. (red.) (1982). ''Divry’s modern English-Greek and Greek-English desk dictionary.'' New York: D.C. Divry. Inc., Publishers.</ref><ref name="Lindenburg1989">Lindenburg, M.A. (1989). ''Woordenboek Nieuwgrieks-Nederlands. Delft: Eburon.</ref> This seems mounting evidence for writing ''leuchaemia''.
:::There are few other consonants that forms new letters with the Greek ''h''. The Greek ''t'' (τ, [[tau]]) forms with the Greek ''h'', Greek letter [[theta]] (θ), translittered by the Romans as ''th''. And the Greek ''p'' (π, [[pi]]) preceding the Greek ''h'' forms the Greek letter [[phi]] (φ), usually translitterated by the Romans as ''ph''. Medical Latin uses ''polycythaemia'' <ref name="Pinkhof2012">Everdingen, J.J.E. van, Eerenbeemt, A.M.M. van den (2012). ''Pinkhof Geneeskundig woordenboek'' (12de druk). Houten: Bohn Stafleu Van Loghum.</ref> (''t'' of ''kutos'' (κύτος) merges with the ''h'' of ''haima'') and ''aphaemia'' <ref name="Pinkhof2012"/> (''p'' of ''apo'' (ἀπό) merges with the ''h'' of ''haima'').
:::This merge from the Greek ''h'' with the preceding letter into a new letter containing the ''h'' (in translitteration) can only occure for k+h=ch (κ+´=χ) , t+h = th (τ+´=θ) and p+h=ph (π+´=φ). In medical Latin ''anaemia'' <ref name="Pinkhof2012"/> (Ancient Greek: ἀναιμία) no ''h'' precedes ''-aemia'' as the Greek ''n'' (ν) and ''h'' can not merge into a different letter. In that case the ''h'' is 'left out'.
:::In medical Latin the compound of ''leukos'' (λευκός) and ''haimorrhois'' (αἱμορροΐς) is also written as ‘’leuchaemorrhois’’. <ref name="Kraus1844">Kraus, L.A. (1844). ''Kritisch-etymologisches medicinisches Lexikon'' (Dritte Auflage). Göttingen: Verlag der Deuerlich- und Dieterichschen Buchhandlung.</ref><ref name="Gabler1881"/>, although the incorrect spelling ''leucaemorrhois'' <ref name="Foster1891"/> also exists. It can be possible that those writers of the incorrect forms that left out the ''h'' are misled by the form ''anaemia'' that is lacking the ''h''.
:::It seems that ''leuchaemia'' is the least ''barbaric''. Both the form ''leucaemia'' and ''leukaemia'' seems to neglect general rules of Greek morphology. Moreover ''leukaemia'' is displaying a ''k'' that is quite rare in classical Latin. Unfortunately, the ''k'' is used in medical Latin too often. However, the form ''leuchaemia'' is quite rare in medical Latin from the 20th and 21st century. Some people would therefore choose to use ''leucaemia'' instead. In addition, full expressions like ''leucaemia myeloica'' <ref name="Leflot">Leflot-Soetemans, C. & Leflot, G. (1975). ''Standaard Geneeskundig woordboek Frans-Nederlands.'' Antwerpen-Amsterdam: Standaard Uitgeverij.</ref> can not be found easily with the orthography ''leuchaemia'' (but please check this [http://www.scb.se/Grupp/Hitta_statistik/Historisk_statistik/_Dokument/SOS/Halso_sjukvard/Halsovarden%20sjukvarden%20forsvaret%201968.pdf source]). However, I am biased to use ''leuchaemia'' as it less ''barbaric'', but I would advocate that you would explain your usage in the text of the article and/or use scientific sources for the attestation of the specific form.
