Abstract

That a significant step in the development of medical terminology in ChiShona is taking place is indicated by the emergence of yet another Duramazwi reUtano. This is accomponied by a Denhe reUrapi neUtano. Old words, now not in common use, are brought back, and new words, are emerging by a variety of routes such as translations and new coinages. While Dr Manyame's efforts are those of an individual medical professional, it is time others came to the table. These may include health workers of all descriptions, and language experts, and enthusiasts as well.
