In their daily work, scientists use English for Medical Purposes (EMP) automatically in the apparent absence of written rules. Instead, EMP is composed of several linguistic features that are always under a continuous evolution according to the progress of Science. On these grounds, Rosita Maglie prepared the PART I of her work with the specific aim to analyse, describe and exemplify the main characteristics of such a specialized language. Moreover, the Part II of this book is a more practical section and the efforts of the author were aimed at the acquisition of the capability of communicating EMP from the student side. In conclusion, this book provides scientists, medical doctors, health professionals and students attending scientific–medical universities with new information concerning EMP, thus permitting them to increase the efficiency of their communication in the tasks prescribed by their study or work situation. So, a very broad readership can take advantage of the notions contained in this book! (Text arranged from the Preface).
