The Human Body

Anatomical Terms and What They Mean (2nd Edition)

By Terry M. Mayhew

Nowadays, English-speaking undergraduates in medicine, dentistry, veterinary science, nursing, physiotherapy, and allied professions lack the basics in Latin and Greek - the languages from which the great majority of anatomical terms are derived. The glossary presented in this expanded second edition takes the word-root of key anatomical terms and explains their meanings. It gives examples of their use in anatomical and other contexts, including everyday English usage. The meanings are reinforced with questions about related anatomical knowledge.
