In this framework, the particular topics are addressed both descriptively and quasi-prescriptively, commonly with a number of explicatory annotations.

Formerly titled Programmed Medical Language in its first edition, this innovative resource focuses on teaching a carefully selected group of suffixes, prefixes, and word roots that provide the basis for recognizing and defining hundreds of medical terms. After an introductory chapter that explains the structure of medical terms, subsequent lessons focus on the various body systems. Very brief anatomy presentations begin each of the body system lessons before word parts are introduced. The remainder of each lesson is a series of frames that require readers to combine the word parts to create terms or define terms based on their recently acquired knowledge of the word parts. The accompanying CD offers audio pronunciations of terms and interactive exercises that reinforce chapter learning. Instructor resources are available to qualified adopters; contact your sales representative for more information.
