-Quite a number of different designations have been found for these persons. [[Maudsley]] and Ball call them ' Borderland dwellers ' that is to say, dwellers on the [[borderland]] between reason and pronounced madness. [[Magnan]] gives to them the name of 'higher degenerates' (degeneres superieurs), and Lombroso speaks of 'mattoids' (from matto, the Italian for insane), and ' [[graphomaniacs]],' under which he classifies those semi-insane persons who feel a strong impulse to write. In spite, however, of this variety of nomenclature, it is a question simply of one single species of individuals, who betray their fellowship by the similarity of their mental physiognomy. +# [[land]] near a [[border]]; [[marches]]
