Vocabulary Aids

A&P students must assimilate a large working vocabulary. This is far easier and more meaningful if they can pronounce words correctly and if they understand the roots that compose them. Chapter 1 now has a section, "The Language of Medicine," which I hope will help get students into the habit of breaking new words into familiar roots, and help them appreciate the importance of precision in spelling and word use. Pronunciation guides are given parenthetically when new words are introduced, using a "pro-NUN-see-AY-shun" format that is easy for students to interpret. New terms are accompanied by footnotes that identify their roots and origins, and a lexicon of about 400 most commonly used roots and affixes appears in appendix C (p. A-7).
