Descrizione

The terms in this section are organized alphabetically, with brief introductory definitions and corresponding "dissection" of their roots and morphologies, in one setting. Thus, the terms are truly DECODED! Understanding the imagery and metaphor of common Greek and Latin words in A&P facilitates understanding and recall more efficiently than laborious repetitive drills of literal terms. Get an overview of the system terminology by surveying the DIRECTORY OF TERMS. The collection of terms in this volume encompasses the whole subject and more. The complete list of terms will help students to be proactive and may be incorporated in the course syllabus. Solicit your professors' guidance as to the important terms. It is navigable and direct to the point. “Ahah!” moments for the truly esoteric terms await you; the “Duh!” moments will deepen your appreciation of Anatomy & Physiology.

AN ENCOURAGEMENT FROM THE AUTHOR

Congratulations for acquiring this study guide to Anatomy and Physiology (A&P) Terminology. Use it for the most esoteric A&P terms to the very ordinary, self-explanatory, terms. Seemingly commonplace terms hold the Aha!-moments of this Greek/Latin roots treatise. It will enhance your understanding of the terms. These books are translated into several languages and the ordinary terms easily understood in the English speaking world will be handy for non-English speakers. The Latin based nomenclature of A&P is standardized internationally.

Mastering these terms will ease your sojourn through the academic years of your chosen health profession. By giving you a handle on the massive number of terms, the author hopes to ease the perennial concern of Health majors about A&P: How am I going to remember all these? Easily and naturally, after you discover their imagery, served to you in a silver platter. This is the books’ promise, the fulfillment of which is on your shoulder.

Scan the directory to prepare for the section. Every root entry is self-contained. When you click on a term, you will be linked to an organized and concise etymological compounding of the terms. It is a distillation of sources from online etymology sites, A&P textbook, English and Latin Dictionaries, not a rehash of Google entries.

There are two parts to the decoding of the cryptic terms: 1. a brief def. of term, its morphology, indicated by comp.,; and the metaphorical and figurative brief treatise. 2. the Root-Stems, Prefix-Suffixes. The brief def. should not be relied on for full understanding. It is, merely, introductory. You will discover the fascinating, sometimes amusing imagery behind the terms. The stems morph into two or more different terms, introducing you to more concepts.

If your curiosity, wonderment, and awe of Anatomy and Physiology are enhanced by this body of work, I will have fulfilled my goal.

HOW TO USE THIS BOOK

Every entry is self-contained and self-explanatory. Again, served to you in a silver platter.

NOTE: The following Latin Grammar tidbit is for the few remaining Latin grammarians alive. At this point, if none of this is of interest to you, skip it. Go ahead and start DECODING!

The key parts to recognize in the compounding of A&P terms are the stems of nouns and verbs which are the direct derivation of the terms. The stem in nouns is the plural form; in verbs, the past participle form. If this does not make sense now, be not concerned. This phenomenon is indicated in each entry. Nevertheless, this is illustrated below.

GUIDELINE 1 – Latin nouns: The plural form is the direct derivation of terms.

Example 1: Os (n.; plu., Osses), a bone

The plural form, Osses, is derived for OSSIFICATION, OSSICLES

Example 2: Rete (n.; plu., Retices), a net

The plural form, Retices, is derived for RETICULUM, RETICULATED

Example 3: Caput (n.; plu., Capites), a head

The plural form, Capites, is derived for CAPITATE, CAPITULUM

NOTE: The plural forms of nouns become unrecognizable from their singular form (Os to Osses; Rete to Retices; Caput to Capites). This is, simply, the nature of Latin noun declension; this is not a cause for concern since plural forms are indicated in the entries as shown above.

GUIDELINE 2 – Latin verbs: The past participle form is the direct derivation.

Example 1: Rotare (v.; Roto, Rotare, Rotavi, Rotatum), to turn, whirl around

Rotatum (past participle form), turned around, whirled around

Thus, Rotatum is derived for ROTATION, ROTATOR

Example 2: Abducere (v.; Abduco, Abducere, Abduxi, Abductum), to lead away

Abductum (past participle form), led away

Thus, Abductum is derived for ABDUCTION, ABDUCTOR.

NOTE: The past participle form usually ends in –tum (Rotatum, Abductum). The rest of the entries within the parentheses, (Abduco, Abducere, Abduxi, Abductum), are mere Latin grammar convention (in courtesy to the few remaining Latin Grammarians left alive).

Recognize these patterns for nouns and verbs and the rest is self-explanatory.

GUIDELINE 3 – Adjectives and prepositional derivatives are self-evident.
