    However it is labelled

    I have another please: this is the last para and the most important for me so I don't want to open a new thread:
    The medical discourse on trauma has had heuristic value and some of those diagnosed as having post-traumatic stress disorder do have clinically significant psychiatric dysfunction" however it is labelled(and post-traumatic stress disorder will sometimes do).

    What is the meaning of the word labelled?
    Thanks.

    Re: The basis of many compensation cases

    'However it is labelled' means 'however it is described or classified or categorized'. 'Post-traumatic stress disorder' is one such label or classification or categorization.

    Sorry to say, but the part in the brackets does not sound correct ("will sometimes do" - does not make sense) - but I am guessing that it means that PTSD is sometimes labelled differently. I think the part in the brackets should be "as it is sometimes done with PTSD" ('as it is sometimes done' = however PTSD is labelled/categorized/classified).

    Re: The basis of many compensation cases

    So, the "Psychiatric Dysfunction" is categorized as PSTD?

    I know about the problem of - will sometimes do, but I took this from the article, its the mistake of the author.
    Thanks.

    Re: The basis of many compensation cases

    I know you said you didn't want to open a new thread but it didn't make any sense to tack this question on to your previous thread which hadn't even had a response yet, so I have moved it to its own thread.

    Trust me, it's better that way.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Yes. Of the many types of psychiatric dysfunctions/disorders, PTSD is one. So this particular psychiatric disorder is labeled/categorized as PTSD. Alternatively, we can also say PTSD is labeled/categorized as a psychiatric dysfunction (as opposed to some other type of disorder such as a physiological disorder). I hope this is not confusing.

    Captain1, I thought the text in the bracket must be from the article, but since I was not sure, I clarified it. I hope you won't mind.
