Word Building—the foundation for success begins with Barbara Gylys and the Body Systems Approach.

The med term approaches and how they differ…

  • Most med terms books teach by memorization—the whole word approach.

    • Memorize vocabulary and then try to recognize word patterns.

  • Gylys uses the word-buildingapproach.

    • First learn the patterns of medical words before you learn the vocabulary.

  • Gylys takes a common sense approach, by introducing word elements first:

    • Roots
    • Combining forms
    • Suffixes
    • Prefixes

  • She covers them one by one, breaking down each word part.
  • Common English word elements are presented…

    • This familiarity makes it easier for students to learn and break apart and build words.
    • Students can use their understanding of word parts to decipher vocabulary.

  • Mnemonic devices, interactive activities (in the book and on the CD) make word-building fun and this in turn increases retention…no more tedious memorization, students learn by breaking down and rebuilding words!

“From my years of teaching, I found it was much easier for students to learn word parts directly associated with a body system (or specialty area), and this has been the key to my approach in all of my texts and software products.”

—Barbara A. Gylys
