Electroscope—Electron Microscope This article is only available in the PDF format. Download the PDF to view the article, as well as its associated figures and tables. Abstract To the Editor.— Compression of time and space is the essence of today. For several years, having found that "electron microscope," "electron microscopy," "electron microscopist," "electron microscopic," "electron micrograph," and "electron microscopically" were, when used in sentence structure, space-occupying and sometimes hazardous in pronunciation, I compressed the terms into the following: "electroscope," "electroscopy," "electroscopist," "electroscopic," "electrograph," and "electroscopically." For example, in both the printed and spoken version, "tissues examined electron microscopically" is lengthy and a tongue twister, whereas "tissues examined electroscopically" is euphonious, has an easy cadence, and conserves space. These qualities apply as well to the other abbreviated words.Having found acceptance of the above terms by colleagues, I would suggest they be adopted by authors, speakers, and editors. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Archives of Neurology American Medical Association
