Discussion of "inflamati"

Comment #3: Sufferer
Curtis W Franks (Sat Mar 26 22:09:25 2016)

Should there be a terbri for the sufferer (organism with the inflamed
organ)? Inflammation of body parts can be studied as an abstract medical
condition without a need for a specific patient. Moreover, he sufferer can
be given as the sumti of (usually) the second terbri of the body-part which
is given as the sumti of the current-third terbri of this word (the
inflamed body-part/organ). (Aside: we need a good way to denote/compress
that description.)
On the other hand, it would be nice to say "I have an inflamed palatine
uvula", using this word. (But this is equivalent to saying "My palatine
uvula is inflamed", so maybe it is purely English which is
interfering/causing bad habits here.)
