nomenclature

 [no´men-kla″chur]
terminology; a classified system of technical names, such as of anatomical structures or organisms.
binomial nomenclature the nomenclature used in scientific classification of living organisms in which each organism is designated by two latinized names (genus and species), both of which must always be used because species names are not necessarily unique. note: The genus name is always capitalized, the species name is not, and both are italicized, e.g., Escherichia coli. When a name is repeated the genus name may be abbreviated by its initial, e.g., E. coli.

Alternative medicine
The names used in alternative healthcare often overlap with those of mainstream medicine, as well as other fields, and may cause confusion to the practitioners of both types of medicine, as well as to patients. For example, colonic irrigation is used by mainstream practitioners for the flushing of the large intestine in preparation for emergency surgery, and used by alternative practitioners as a synonym for colon therapy, the practice of performing multiple enemas to flush out putative toxins.

Science-speak
Any system for assigning names to a particular structure.

Nomenclature–alternative medical term–sources of confusion
Different uses for same term Eg, colonic irrigation is used in mainstream medicine for flushing the colon in preparation for emergency surgery, and in alternative health as a synonym for colon therapy, the practice of performing multiple enemas to flush out putative toxins; similarly, herbologists use the same names for medicinal plants as used by horticulturists, which may or may not refer to the same plants; Example: geranium for ornamental use and for medicinal use
Different terms for the same entity Eg, homeopaths use a latinized term, Natrum muriaticum, for table salt–sodium chloride; similarly, some herbs are known by the trivial name, eg, rue, and blood root, while the homeopathic remedies based on these same plants take the Latin name, Ruta, and Sanguinaria, respectively
