Cherry, Ralph, Comp.
Designed to acquaint social workers and other professionals in the mental health field with the basic terms necessary for professional discussions, paper presentations, and international correspondence, the English/Spanish-Spanish/English glossary lists 130 selected mental health terms. The glossary includes two sections: English to Spanish and Spanish to English. In the first section, the terms are listed alphabetically in English, followed by the Spanish equivalent and a pronunciation guide for each Spanish word. In the second section, the terms are listed alphabetically in Spanish, followed by the English equivalent and a pronunciation guide for each English word. Since the pronunciation of vowels is more precise in Spanish, a chart illustrating vowel pronunciation is provided, along with example words. The syllable to be stressed or emphasized always appears in capital letters. To aid in the pronunciation of the English words, the symbols which appear in "The American Heritage Dictionary of the English Language" are provided. (NQA)
