DIFFERENTIAL GLOSSARY OF HEALTH TERMS

In the Maritime Provinces, doctor-patient communication has become increasingly complicated by the regional varieties of the French language. The purpose of the Les mots pour parler des maux glossary, i.e. ‘Words Used to Talk About Aches and Pains’, is to facilitate the integration of health-care workers who are less familiar with Acadian French and to improve the delivery of health services.

 

We would like to expand this database to include terms used in other French speaking communities of Canada. We invite our users to submit words used in their region. Submit a word « from home ».
