My son had three attacks of throat infection for the month of June. He is still recovering from his third throat infection today.
It’s frustrating… and tiring. Because of my son’s sickness, we were going back and forth to the pediatrician’s clinic. Aside from my son’s condition, what irritates me the most is the pronuciation of the word INFECTION as INJECTION.
How hard is it to pronounce the word “infection”? Even for Koreans? And I had been listening to three Korean pediatricians! And they had all been saying “injection“!
Seemingly minor concern from me here but really, think about these:
- These doctors are Korean professionals.
- Infection and injection are medical terms; being a doctor is being IN a medical profession!
- Infection and injection are basic medical terms with different meanings. So what if these are English words!
Grrrr! They do need to look beyond Korea!
