I'm really not sure why a tablet in medicine and the one in IT is called the same. Does anyone know about it?

Hello Rafaela1

The word 'tablet' comes from Old French and is centuries old. It is ultimately formed from the Latin word for 'table', and can refer to flat surfaces, especially for writing. So it's easy to see how it's been applied to the modern digital device.

I'm not sure how it came to refer to a 'pill', but as you can see on the page I linked to, this use is also centuries old.

All the best

My father was a doctor, but I don´t like hospitals nor doctors, I try to do everything as I can to solve my health´s problems. Also I tried to help people around of me, not given them medicines, but trying to quit their pain with my hands.

I feel a little scared when visiting a doctor or hospital, because I am afraid of injections. I always prefer to take medicine in tablets.

Actually I do not like to go to hospital and see doctors, nurses and dentists although in the case of having disease we have to go there and I think we will find the suitable medicine and tablets.
