Abstract

To the Editor:

I have received an inquiry as to whether neurosensory or neurosensorial is the preferred usage in regard to an adjective modifying hearing loss. The transactions of the Academy prefer neurosensory as does the Editorial Department of the Mayo Clinic. I also prefer this usage, as neurosensorial sounds a bit clumsy even though I am forced to admit the ending is closer to the adjective form. I would like to know your opinion on this matter and the usage you have adopted for the Archives.
