	abstract     = {This paper reports on a corpus-based, contrastive study of Swedish medical language. It is focused on the vocabulary used in two types of medical
 textual material: professional portals and web-based consumer sites within the domain of cardiovascular disorders. Linguistic, statistical and 
quantitatively based readability studies are considered in order to find the typical language-dependent and, possibly, language independent 
characteristics of the material examined and suggest concrete measures that might bridge the gap in medical vocabulary as used by laypersons/consumers 
and professionals. },
