Even physical therapists, presenters, and college professors all say the terms differently. What is the correct pronunciation of basic anatomical terminology? In this course, Sarah B. Manis, BA in English, takes us through the history of nomenclature and then helps us with proper pronunciation of the common muscles in the body. Each muscle is represented with its common spelling, phonetic spelling, a picture, the Latin root of the term, and then the muscle is used in a sentence that helps us learn about the muscle. The best part of this CD Rom is that you can click on the speaker icon and HEAR and PRACTICE the correct pronunciation.
