Affection (Disorder) - Definition


Definition


The term affection takes on two meanings that are very different from each other. On the one hand, affection describes, in contemporary language, a form of tenderness and regard for someone and attachment to that person. For this term, American Anglophones living in the United States will understand affection to mean "disorder" when used in the following medical context. On the other hand, in a more medical aspect, a disorder describes all processes relating to a sickness, with the exception of the causes of this illness. In the second case, we can talk about a neurological disorder, for example, to describe an illness affecting the nerves (meaning a neuropathy) or an acute or chronic disorder to characterize an illness.
