In this chapter, we examine the role of language in clinical reasoning. We consider that attention to this aspect of clinical reasoning can help all healthcare professionals come to a deeper understanding of what clinical reasoning is. An awareness of how language works in practice can help novices master the intricacies of clinical reasoning. This awareness can also help teachers develop appropriate pedagogies that can assist students to develop mastery of clinical reasoning.
