diarrhœal

  1. Obsolete spelling of diarrheal
    • 1898, Thomas Stevenson, A Treatise on Hygiene and Public Health, P. Blakiston, Son, & Co.; Volume II of III, page 844:
      Rainfall exerts an influence upon diarrhœal mortality, but probably an indirect one, through its influence on the temperature of the soil.
      Air‐movement also influences diarrhœal mortality, wind lessening, and calm, in the diarrhœal season, promoting it.
