Lineages of language and the diagnosis of asthma Gopalakrishnan Netuveli, Brian Hurwitz, Aziz Sheikh.

Asthma, wheeze and cough are words with differing histories, etymologies and meanings. Yet their medical usage today is clustered around the diagnosis and management of a single disease. Hitherto, asthma has been a clinical diagnosis but wheeze, cough and asthma now are key terms in cross-cultural questionnaire surveys. The medical meanings of these terms contrast with meanings revealed by the non-medical usage of all three terms, which are highly figurative.
