Completely Disrobed Hominid?
One of my EWIS students is an expert in forensic anatomy, and she inadvertently provided sufficient information for me to track down a paper that she co-wrote with other anatomical experts:
"Radiological Diagnosis of Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia in 17th Century Korean Mummy"I looked for a thesis statement, of course, which is usually placed at the end of the introduction, and found this penultimate sentence:
Most recently, in the course of a routine computed tomography (CT) and associated autopsy on a 17th century Korean mummy, we found evidence suggesting that the man might have suffered from CDH.As I commented to my student in an email:
If only you had gotten to him 400 years earlier, you could have saved his life!I suggested some Korean ppali-ppali:
Work faster!And in my ignorance, I asked:
PS What's CDH, anyway -- Completely Dead Human?My student replied:
Ha-ha-ha That was funny. K-k-k-k . . .Ah, there it is, in the article's title. Hmmm . . . though it looks like three key words to my eyes, but my eyesight is faulty now that I'm old and approaching my more serious sort of CDH . . .
I will let my professor know: "Completely Dead Human"
Actually it is Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia -- the keyword of the paper!
