Hebrew term or phrase: חסך
like חסך פונולוגי
This is a weird term. It appears a few times on Google with the meaning of "deficit" (חסר) and I can't figure out whether this is for a justified reason (different from חסר) or whether this is simply a typo or a politically-correct version of "חסר". If so, is there a politically-correct term for "deficit"? Is there a need for one?
How would חסך translate as a standalone term in the context of חסך פונולוגי other than "deficit"?

deficit
Explanation:
"Phonological deficit"
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Phonological_deficit

I think "deficit" is the accepted term in this context. I've also found references to a "double-deficit hypothesis" when the person has both deficits in phonology and naming speed. (See archive link below)

The "psyhaifa" link also discusses חסך פונולוגי and the last page (which unlike the rest is in EN) mentions double deficit (and the two aspects: phonological deficit, naming deficit).

Hope this helps.
