Subtitle: Sprachliche Professionalisierung in der psychiatrischen Schreibpraxis (1800-1939)
Written By: Britt-Marie Schuster

Series Title: Germanistische Linguistik 286
Description:

This monograph illuminates the origin and development of psychiatric
terminology from a linguistic perspective. The study begins with the period
around 1800 when the first mental hospitals were founded, then goes on to
describe the consolidation of academic psychiatry at the beginning of the
20th century and ends by elucidating the use of psychiatric terminology
during the Nazi era. The development of a specialized vocabulary and the
kinds and styles of texts specific to psychiatry are presented using case
studies derived from the evaluation of extensive source material.
