  • Usage notes

    * In medical and other technical fields, and in mainstream reportage of medical and other such topics, the participle (term) is particularly often found as the latter half of a compound functioning as an adjective, the first half of the compound being either an agent (identifying a person or thing that is inducing) or an instrument (identifying a thing that is used to induce); hence (term), (term), (term), and so on. In some cases, (term) may even appear on its own as an adjective, as in (induced abortion).
