About The Book
Nowadays, medical, dental, veterinary, nursing, science, physiotherapy and allied professional undergraduates in English-speaking countries lack the basics in Latin and Greek – the languages from which the great majority of anatomical terms derive.
The glossary presented in this book expands that in the successful earlier first edition. It takes the word-root of key anatomical terms, explains their meanings and gives examples of their use in anatomical and other contexts, including everyday English usage. The meanings are reinforced with questions about related anatomical knowledge.
