Lyric diction is a portal to powerful and meaningful vocal performance because diction enables singers to communicate the vision of both the poet and the composer. The study of diction involves learning to perceive speech patterns in different languages, practicing their precise articulation, recognizing this in speech and singing, and developing an awareness of the refined movements of the articulators and their effects on singing tone. In the second edition of English and German Diction for Singers, Amanda Johnston continues her comparative, modernized approach to lyric diction. This comprehensive resource offers a thorough analysis of the German and English languages and includes extensive oral drills, word lists, tables, charts, musical examples, and even tongue twisters. Unique to this publication is the illustration of the rhythmic timing and release of consonants within the International Phonetic Alphabet transcriptions in all musical examples. This book is designed for both undergraduate and graduate courses in German and English lyric diction and is an invaluable resource for classical singers, vocal coaches, and voice teachers alike. Improvements to the second edition include: An online workbook that includes extensive written exercises suitable for classroom or independent use Chapter-by-chapter video clips that demonstrate the concepts addressed in the text Expanded chapters address the schwa, the treatment of monosyllabic incidental words, the use of R, and the correct formation of the elusive upsilon and extended epsilon Consideration of loan words and stressed vs. unstressed closed German vowels Integrated practice drills for mastering challenging and unfamiliar phonemes Enlarged musical examples show the rhythmic timing and release of voiced and voiceless consonants An expanded appendix on suggested repertoire for diction study Inclusion of specific diction choices suitable for musical theatre repertoire Expanded discussion of healthy glottal onsets, including the concept of juncture Use of the latest resources, namely Deutsche Rechtschreibung (2014) and Cambridge Pronouncing Dictionary, 18th edition (2011) For all users, there is a WORKBOOK.

Cracking the Code: A quick reference guide to interpreting patient medical notes

Cracking the Code covers the basics of the contents of patients’ medical notes from a review of physiological systems to the interpretation of tests and investigations commonly ordered for patients. Common medical terminology used in a review of physiological systems is briefly explained. Commonly encountered investigative procedures are defined and their use explained. Medical laboratory tests are similarly explored. Much of this book concentrates upon the secondary care environment because this remains the main setting in which healthcare professionals have free and open access to patient medical notes. However the expanding roles of healthcare professionals in the primary care sector mean that all practitioners need to be able to unlock the code. It is hoped that this book will therefore be of use not only to the undergraduate pharmacy students for whom it was originally developed, but also to other healthcare professionals who access patient medical notes on a routine basis. Contents include: Section 1: Medical terminology Section 2: Patient medical notes Section 3: Investigative procedures Section 4: Laboratory reports Section 5: Medical abbreviations
