ex. from a research article or book. I'll begin.

The 36% suicide attempt rate reported in our sample of 50 adults with AS is much higher than the 4.6% lifetime prevalence rates seen in the general population. Similar to the general population, females were slightly more likely to have attempted suicide than males.

does this count? :)

leo kanner was born chaskel leib kanner to orthodox jewish parents. chaskel is a yiddish version of ezekiel, he apparently hated the sound of it.

one of the few who pronounced "kanner" right (like "connor") consistently, was a irish asylum patient who called him "father o'connor".
