The Visual Dictionary of Human Being lets you discover the structure of the human body and its constitutive organs, and have a look to equipment used to ensure everybody’s health and well-being. Convenient and affordable, this book is the best reference tool to explore all aspects of human beings!
The Visual Dictionary takes an inventory of the physical environment of a person who is part of today’s technological age and who knows and uses a large number of specialized terms in a wide variety of fields.
Designed for the general public, it responds to the needs of anyone seeking the precise, correct terms for a wide range of personal or professional reasons: finding an unknown term, checking the meaning of a word, translation, advertising, teaching material, etc.
The target user has guided the choice of contents for The Visual Dictionary, which aims to bring together in 12 thematic books the technical terms required to express the contemporary world, in the specialized fields that shape our daily experience.
Each tome has three sections: the preliminary pages, including the table of contents; the body of the text (i.e. the detailed treatment of the theme); the index. Information is presented moving from the most abstract to the most concrete: sub-theme, title, subtitle, illustration, terminology.
Each word in The Visual Dictionary has been carefully selected following examination of high-quality documentation, at the required level of specialization. There may be cases where different terms are used to name the same item. In such instances, the word most frequently used by the most highly regarded authors has been chosen. Words are usually referred to in the singular, even if the illustration shows a number of individual examples. The word designates the concept, not the actual illustration.
Within the hierarchical format of The Visual Dictionary’s presentation, the definitions fit together like a Russian doll. For example, the information within the definition for the term insect at the top of the page does not have to be repeated for each of the insects illustrated. Instead, the text concentrates on defining the distinguishing characteristics of each insect (the louse is a parasite, the female yellow jacket stings, and so forth). Since the definition leaves out what is obvious from the illustration, the illustrations and definitions complement one another. The vast majority of the terms in the Visual Dictionary are defined. Terms are not defined when the illustration makes the meaning absolutely clear, or when the illustration suggests the usual meaning of the word (for example, the numerous handles).
