This paper records and classifies a number of common errors in the grammar and pronunciation of medical Latin, including several that appear in medical dictionaries. Most of these errors arise through mistaken analogy with unrelated grammatical forms or phonetic patterns. A discussion of their implications for communication leads to the conclusion that, although they pose little threat to the accurate preservation and transfer of data, they represent a breakdown in the coherence and consistency of a unified language system and, in some instances, a violation of internationally codified nomenclatural rules.
