A medical Yorkism
Here’s one I’ve heard a few times in recent weeks. I don’t think it’s York-specific; in fact, I think it’s just old-fashioned, but I’m open to discussion.
It’s that someone has “been doctoring” for an ailment, instead of “been seeing the doctor.”
It does fit the Yorkism tradition of economy of words, though!
Anyone else familiar with this one?
