I'd just like to point out here, for the record, that, if you go back and
read my ORIGINAL post that started this whole messy thread, you'll find
that that is what it was all about. That our terms seem to be our undoing
and maybe we should shop for new ones that are more specific to our needs.

Now, the first time I made the foolhearty, unscientific, and generally
ludicrous offering that maybe, just maybe, other cultures had some terms
that we may find useful in this pursuit. I won't make that mistake again.
I see now the silliness of believing this claptrap may offer at least a
useful terminology. But, if not those nonsensical mystical terms used by
peoples for ten or more centuries, then what terms? And whose?

What is the scientific name for a sigh?
