A dictionary of hearing.


A dictionary of hearing.

Maltby, Maryanne Tate.

Thieme Medical Publishers


249 pages



Maltby cites over 4,000 words used in audiology and hearing-related areas, along with facts about their form and etymology, and the pronunciation for difficult or uncommon words. The entries provide (as appropriate) the usual spelling, acronym, part of speech, status, usual pronunciation, alternative plural or singular form, etymology, onomastic, synonym, meaning, alternative forms used as other parts of speech, an example of use, and a list of antonyms. For the ease of scholars, she prefers separate entries to cross-references and avoids abbreviations whenever possible.
