Sounds Fascinating

By J. C. Wells

How do you pronounce biopic, synod, and Breughel? - and why? Do our cake and archaic sound the same? Where does the stress go in stalagmite? What's odd about the word epergne? As a finale, the author writes a letter to his 16-year-old self.

Title: English in Medicine
Subtitle: A Course in Communication Skills
Written By: Eric H. Glendinning
Beverly Holmström

English in Medicine is a course for doctors, medical students and other
medical professionals who need to communicate with patients and medical
colleagues. The course is at an intermediate level and does not require
specialist knowledge on the part of the teacher. Each of the seven units
focuses on one area of doctor-patient communication, from history taking
and examination to diagnosis and treatment. The course develops all four
skills through a wide variety of activities. The third edition is now in
full colour and has been updated to take account of developments in
medicine and the impact of new information technology.
