Resumen

Medical language is a scientific and technical language and, therefore, must be based on four pillars: accuracy, correctness, clarity and conciseness. In this paper some of the most common problems and defects of medical language, are described, including the abuse of abbreviations and acronyms, the invasion of unnecessary foreign words, the use of gimmicky titles in articles and abuse of gerund and capital letters. It also outlines considerations about the medical sexist language. To address these problems, the author of biomedical texts has effective weapons such as: critical dictionaries of doubts; dictionaries of the difficulties of the Spanish language; writing and style manuals; word lists of misleading translation; and reading quality texts.
