On the topic of nomenclature (and nothing else): My wife, who is a medical doctor, and I, as an organic chemist, sometimes fail to agree on the meaning of names for some pretty basic concepts, in our respective areas.
Take “MS” for instance. A clear case of mass spectrometry to me. To my wife, it is multiple sclerosis.
Or why not “reflux”. That’s a funny word. All chemists are well familiar with the concept of refluxing. We love to reflux the hell out of stubborn reagents, after they have failed us at room temperature. Reflux is good. My wife says reflux is bad. She says there are drugs against it.
