- Edwin J. Houston (1903) A Dictionary of Electrical Words, Terms and Phrases, P. F. Collier & Son, entry “Resistance, Ohmic”, page 456: “The term ohmic resistance must be regarded as a pleonasm. Its use can only be permitted in contradistinction to counter electromotive force resistance. True and spurious resistance would seem preferable.”
