Summary

This completely revised edition now includes the most current terminology -- straight from Taber's Cyclopedic Medical Dictionary, 19th edition. This unique text helps your students learn medical terminology from a "classics" approach and includes references to Greek and Latin mythology. In addition, many new illustrations reinforce concepts and highlight various etymological notes.

KEY FEATURES

  • Units 1 and 2 provide an introduction to essential Greek and Latin grammar, the basis of medical terminology and common English
  • A vocabulary list at the beginning of each chapter is followed by etymological notes -- or vignettes -- that help students understand the vocabulary
  • Numerous user-friendly exercises provide students with practice in analyzing and defining words, providing derivations from Greek or Latin roots, defining words used within the context of medical discussions, and reviewing vocabulary
  • Units 3 and 4 cover specific body systems and incorporate extensive etymological notes to provide students with an easy method of understanding how to apply the principles of medical terminology to specific body systems
