Terms Coined in War .. The Alternative Mother and the Living Martyr

Wars end, however their terminology, vocabulary and aftermath remain alive in our memory. As a consequence of living a war for years in Syria, a number of new terms that describe the suffering of Syrians during this difficult time have begun to emerge.

“Alternative Mother” is a new term that is used to refer the mother who raises children who lost their own mother after a certain calamity or became orphans.

“”The Living Martyr” is a fighter who was so severely injured and that his injury prevented him from living his normal life and consequently forced him to seek help and live on what others can offer.
