Who is a Medical Transcriptionist?

A person who carries out medical transcription is called a medical transcriptionist or in short an MT. The MT uses and apparatus entitled as 'medical transcriber'. The person who does medical transcription is supposed to at all times be called a "medical transcriptionist." An MT (medical transcriptionist) is an individual trustworthy intended for exchanging the patient's health check documents into typewritten layout more willingly than hand-written.

The word transcriber explains the electronic equipment used to make medical transcription, for instance a cassette player by means of bottom foot is in command of is operated by the medical transcriptionist intended for report statement playback and transcription. A decade ago, MTs were also known as Medical
Language Specialist or HIM (Health Information Management) paraprofessionals.

Direct and Indirect Speech

In a conversation between two people, they often use the pronouns I, WE, and YOU, as they talk to each other and this kind of conversation is called DIRECT SPEECH. 
In that conversation when they talk about another person who is not in the scene is called INDIRECT SPEECH. In this indirect speech, they often use HE, SHE, IT and 

THEY as pronouns. See this conversation example:

Direct speech:
Raja: How are you, Rani?
Rani: I am fine, what about you?

Indirect Speech:
Raja: What did Abdul tell to him?
Rani: Abdul told him to leave the job

Direct and indirect speeches can used in all the present, past and future forms.

See the example sentences below:

PRESENT scenario:
Shankar says 'I am loving you now' (direct)
Shankar says that he is loving me now (indirect)

In the present situation, the FIRST PERSON in the direct speech is converted to THIRD PERSON in the indirect speech. Right. The time term NOW is not changed in both cases.

PAST scenario:
Kamal told "I am taking a new movie now" (direct)
Kamal told that he was taking a new movie then (indirect)

In the present situation, the FIRST PERSON in the direct speech is converted to THIRD PERSON in the indirect speech, but NOW is changed to THEN. Understood.
 TODAY may 

be changed THAT DAY. The words that depict the time of action may be changed like this:
Today - that day, yesterday - previous day or the day before, tomorrow - the next day or the following day
, here - there, this - that, these - those.

In the next lesson, we will see about ACTIVE VOICE AND PASSIVE VOICE in English grammar.

All Tenses - Brief Review

All tense forms are reviewed once again in this post. After this post, we will move on to direct and indirect speech lessons. Even though we have seen lessons on each tense form of present, past and future types, we will see each of them in brief for the readers memory. In the present tense types, AM, IS, ARE, HAS and HAVE are the auxiliary verbs that support verb in each word. In SIMPLE PRESENT tense verbs are supported by DO and DOES. Present continuous auxiliaries are AM, IS and ARE. Present perfect tense auxiliaries are HAS and HAVE. Present perfect continuous tense carry HAS BEEN and HAVE BEEN with their verbs. CAN, COULD, MAY, MIGHT, NEED, OUGHT TO, KEEP, DARE, USED TO, GOING TO, SHOULD, WOULD, MUST are present tense universal auxiliaries.

In the past tense types, past tense is denoted by adding WAS, WERE and HAD with verbs. DID is used to denote simple past tense. WAS and WERE used to denote past continuous tenses. HAD for past perfect tense and HAD BEEN for past perfect continuous tense. Past universal auxiliaries are KEEP, KEPT, MIGHT, WOULD, COULD and USED TO.

In the future tense types, WILL and SHALL are added to future sentences. WILL BE and SHALL be are for future continuous tenses. WILL HAVE and SHALL HAVE for future perfect tenses. WILL HAVE BEEN and SHALL HAVE BEEN for future perfect continuous tenses. Universal auxiliaries for future tenses are COULD, KEEP, WOULD, USED TO and MIGHT. We can use WOULD HAVE, COULD HAVE, SHOULD HAVE, MIGHT HAVE, NEED HAVE, OUGHT TO HAVE, WAS GOING TO, WERE GOING TO, MUST HAVE and WOULD HAVE to denote future in the past tenses. 

In the next post, we will study about DIRECT and INDIRECT SPEECH. Okay. Come on.

Usage of Future Tense in the Past Tense

In this post, we will discuss about how to use the future tense in the past tense. Often we are in a condition to express our ideas of future times in the past times. For example, read this sentence. We could not have gotten the independence without a hard freedom struggle. In this sentence, independence achievement was a future dream in the past, understood. We can also use Might Have instead of Could Have, both will give the same meaning. In the example sentence above, the action already has finished, so it is a completed action. In normal sense, completed actions are revealed in the past tense or past perfect tense. So in the past perfect tense sense, we can use could have, might have, would have, should have, must have, need have, ought to have etc., to express future in the past tense expressions.

Future in the Past Tense
1. We should have married. 
2. The past lovers would not have met if the train reached exactly announced time.
3. You must not have left your college education for your cinema dreams.
4. They need not have joined the party.

In the above examples, we did use past perfect tenses. We can use future in the past, both in positive sentences and in negative sentences too. You can frame any question using these sentences.

So to express future in the past, we can use COULD HAVE, WOULD HAVE, MUST HAVE, NEED HAVE, OUGHT TO HAVE and WOULD HAVE KEPT.

In the next lesson, we will reviese about all the tenses we have learnt yet. Okay. Come on.

How to Use 'Going To' in English Grammar?

I am 'going to' explain about how to use the auxiliary 'Going To' in English grammar now. For your informatin, going to is a pure auxiliary, but one cannot use it in a sentence without the help of other auxiliary. 'Going to' can be used with some other auxiliary to give a meaningful sentence.

Usage of Going to: This auxiliary is used in sentences to express any future actions or any expectation in the future. The rule is that any other auxiliary related to the subject must accompany the auxiliary 'Going to'. To express implied future, you should use present form of auxiliary. To express future in the past, you should use past form. We will see some examples now.

To express implied future using Present Form.

1. I am going to explain you now.

In this word, 'AM' is the supporting present form auxiliary with Going To.

2. He is going to participate in the competition.

In this sentence, 'IS' is the present form auxiliary used with Going To.

3. We are going to support Ramesh in this election.

In this sentence, 'ARE' is used as a present form auxiliary verb with Going To.

To express Future in the Past using Past Form.

1. I was going to participate in the competition.

2. We were going to struggle against the management.

In some setences, we may use go as main verb with Going To. In those sentence, you can keep silent of the verb go. For example, you can say, I am going to London tomorrow. No need to say, I am going to go London tomorrow.

You should also avoid using the verb 'come' with Going To. You can use other synonyms of 'come' in those sentences like 'arrive' and 'return'.

In the next lesson, we will see the recap of all the auxiliary verbs we have seen so far. Okay. Come on.

How to use 'Keep' and 'Kept' in English

In this blog post, we are going to learn now about English grammar auxiliaries, such as KEEP and KEPT. Keep and Kept act both as auxiliaries also as verbs. Okay. When we can use KEEP and KEPT in sentences? We can use these two words in sentences when we try to convey an action that is continuing that is an ongoing action. These two auxiliaries can only be used with the help of other auxiliaries only, but cannot be used by themselves. Now we will see in what are the tenses, KEEP and KEPT can be used. We know the point that KEEP and KEPT can be used with other auxiliaries, such as DOES, DO, CAN, MAY, WOULD, SHALL, WILL, HAS, HAD, HAVE, WILL HAVE, WOULD HAVE, and SHOULD HAVE. In what are the tense types they can be used? We will see one by one now.

In the simple present tense, KEEP and KEPT can be used with DO, DOES, CAN, MAY, WOULD by adding ING in the word KEEP. For example see these sentences. 
Do you keep writing novels? 
The answer is
Yes, I do keep writing novels.

In the above-said way, we can use DOES, CAN, MAY, and WOULD. In the simple past form, we can use DID with KEEP. See this example sentnece. 

Did you keep playing for America?

The answe may be,

No, I did not keep playing for America.

In the simple future tense, KEEP can be used with SHALL and WILL. We will see one example sentence here.

Shall we keep making friendship?
Yes, we shall keep making friendship.

In the perfect tenses, KEPT can be used with HAS, HAVE, WILL, WOULD, COULD, SHOULD, and HAD. We will see some more examples for perfect tenses. Okay. In the

present perfect tense sentences, KEPT will be used with HAS in the singular items and HAVE in the plural items. For example,

Have the rioters kept agitating in your area?
Yes, the rioters have kept agitating in my area.

In the future perfect tense,
The boy will have kept watching the television in the room.

In the past perfect tense,
He had kept scolding his friends all over the night.

In the next post, we will see about the usage of GOING TO. Okay. Come on.

'Used To' as an Auxiliary Verb

In the recent posts we came across several "Universal Auxiliaries". Now in this post we would learn more about universal auxiliaries. In this post we would learn some of the four special auxiliaries which are "used to, keep, kept, and going to".
The conditions for the auxiliary "used to" is 
a. to talk about a regular habit of present time.
b. to talk about a past regular habit discontinued some time in the past.
c. to express future expectations.

Used To Grammar Exercises
Some of the rules are 1. In the present tense the auxiliaries "AM USED TO, IS USED TO, ARE USED TO" are used where in the verb form no other verb but a noun must follow. 2. In the past tense the auxiliaries "WAS USED TO, WERE USED TO" are used where in the verb form no other verb but a noun must follow. 3. In the simple past tense the auxiliaries "DID,........ USE TO" are used where in the verb form present form verb is used. In combination with three particular verbs, "get, be and become", we can use this universal auxiliary in future, present perfect, past perfect and future in the past tenses.

1. For the future tense the auxiliaries "will get used to, will become used to, will be used to" are used whenever the verb form get, become or be in present form. 2. For the present perfect tense, the auxiliaries "have/has got used to, have/has become used to, have/has been used to" is used whenever the present perfect form of get, become and be. 3. For the past perfect tense the auxiliaries, "had got used to, had become used to, had been used to" are used whenever the present perfect form of get, become and be are used. 4. For future in the past tense, the auxiliaries "would have got used to, would have become used to, would have been used to" are used whenever the present perfect form of get, become and be are used.  

Present tense with Auxiliary Verb:
1. Are you used to drugs?
A. I am used to drugs.
B. I am not used to drugs.

2. Is Rahim used to smoking?
A. Rahim is used to smoking.
B. Rahim is not used to smoking.

In the next post we would learn some more examples.

Reflexive Pronouns in English

In English language reflexive pronouns are useful in expressing emphatic representations. Emphatic pronouns can be created by adding the word SELF to the pronouns, such as HIM, HER, YOUR, MY and IT in singular expressions. The plural expressions such as THEM, YOUR, and OUR, but SELF becomes SELVES when added to these pronouns. Emphatic expressions are used in a sentence to reflect the action back to the subject part in the sentence. We will see some example sentences now. See this sentence, 'I will pay the debt myself.' In this sentence, 'pay' is the verb action that reflects back to the subject 'I' by adding myself at the end of the sentence. Any reflexive pronoun should be preceded by a noun or a pronoun, adverb or an adjective.
Examples of Reflexive Pronouns
He tested himself in the test.
Joseph copied emails of himself.
My child hurt herself.
He hurts himself.
They identified themselves.
We cheat ourselves.

The other name of the reflexive pronouns is objective pronouns. In the all the above examples, we can see the reflexive pronouns at the end of the sentence to reflect back of the subjects. This is the reason, these pronouns are called also as objective pronouns. It is evident from the explanation and the examples above that reflective pronouns cannot be used in the beginning of the sentences as subjects and they can only be used as objects. But another one important point is to be noted that using reflexive pronouns any other places in the sentences other than the object part will give more emphasize to the meaning of the sentence. See this example sentence, 'He met the killer himself.' We can change the placement of the objective pronoun to be nearby the subject and see how the meaning of the sentence changes. See this example, 'He himself met the killer.' Can you feel the difference in the meaning of the second sentence from the first one. Yes, the second sentence gives more emphasize to the meaning than the first.

In the next post, we will learn about Universal Auxiliaries. Okay.

Emphatic Pronoun in English Grammar

In this post, we are going to deal about emphatic and reflexive pronouns. We all know that a pronoun is usedi n the English language instead of a noun. What is an emphatic pronoun? Emphatic pronoun refers to a personal pronoun and which is employed to emphasize a particular noun. In English language, there are about 23 emphatic pronouns. These pronouns can be used in any part of the sentence, such as in the subject, or in the object, and or in the possessive pronouns. The common pronouns are he, she, it and they. For example, see this sentence, Kamal is a good actor and he realized it. In this sentence, the sentence is a compound sentence attached by 'and.' In this sentence 'Kamal' is the noun and 'he' is the pronoun to denote Kamal and 'it' at the end of the sentence refers the first sentence that Kamal is a good actor. So, HE emphasizes the noun Kamal. In a sentence, any emphatic pronoun can be used for many reasons.

To understand clearly about emphatic pronouns, see this second sentence, 'It is hard to understand Spanish language.' In this sentence, 'it' is the emphatic pronoun used in the subject part of the sentence. In this sentence 'it' is used with an auxiliary verb 'is' and the sentence comes after the auxiliary verb is the subject of the sentence. IT emphasizes the subject part.

The third example of usage of emphatic pronoun is to denote the climate situations. For example, see this sentence, 'it rains.' In this sentence, the subject part 'it' refers to the rain. See this example sentence, 'It was you who avoid my love.' In this sentence, the emphatic pronoun is used to emphasize expression in the past. But it can be used in past, present, and future tenses.

Now we will see another example of emphatic pronoun to emphasize time. See this sentence, 'It is 10 p.m. now.' In this 'it' is used to represent a particular time to emphasize.

In the next post, we will see about reflexive pronouns. Okay.

Come on.

Infinitive Verbs And Gerunds

Some of the examples are given below.

Gerund and Participle in English Grammar

Let us discuss some of the gerunds when the verb is in the present form. We will describe breifly as 
1. Play - Playing, 2. Swim - Swimming, 3. Steal - Stealing, 4. Ride - Riding, 5. Jump - jumping
6. Act - acting, 7. Recieve - Recieving, 8. Smoke - Smoking, 9. Fish - Fishing, 10. Dance - Dancing

Let us come through some of the examples where gerunds appear in the middle of a sentence.
1. You must practise writing every day.
2. Stop acting in the film until you are clear in the action.
3. Rama loves designing room.
4. Reshma start playing as yet.

Before a gerund possessive pronoun is used which describes any noun which will be either an adjective or a possessive pronoun and placed to the left side of 

the noun. Here are some of the examples. Good girl, smart boy, ugly crow, large box, my instrument, her sister, his brother, their boat.

As in the above case we can use a pronoun or a noun before a gerund and it must be in the possessive form like this,
1. Juli's bessing healed the child.
2. The girl heard the birds chirping in the garden.
3. I am sure of his studying abroad.
4. Please excuse our leaving this class.
5. It was her arriving late that delayed the function.
6. My acting did not help the actor.
7. Their playing was excellent.
8. Daniel insisted on my going away from the dais.

Instead of a possessive pronoun if we use a noun, it is in possessive form with an apostrophe 's'.

To do the job of a verb in a sentence, we can use the gerund with the force of a verb as well. In some cases it would look like a second verb. When so used, 

the gerund must be preceded by a preposition such as, to, of, at, for, with, without, in, after, on. 

In the next post we would learn some more about this topic with some examples.

Definition of Gerunds in English Grammar

Until the prior post,we have learnt about Infinitives. From this lesson, we will learn about Gerunds. When we introduce what is a gerund, we can consider any verb and adding 'ing' to it. For example, take the verb 'go', this is an order to go anywhere of someone, with this verb add 'ing', and we will get going.  Other examples are reading, coming, swimming, etc., In all the present form verbs, we can add 'ing' to make it a gerund. After adding 'ing' to any verb, it becomes a gerund and to it is a NOUN. We can use these nouns in the sentences as nouns and it can be used both in subject part of the sentence or in the objective part of the sentence. For example, Going to my aunt's house will make my father angry. In this sentence going is used in the subject part of the sentence. Other examples of using gerunds in the subject part of a sentence.

Gerund as subject in the sentences:

1. Fishing is my best hobby.

2. Bathing everyday is an essential thing.

3. Readin gives refreshment to our brains.

Gerund as object in the sentences:

1. He is tired of swimming.

2. All of you stop crying.

3. Your crew went went shooting.
Gerunds can also be found in the middle of the sentences too, but hesitantly we should not consider those as gerunds. If we find, gerunds in the middle of the sentence, those words may be participle. You should use a noun test to prove if one word in the sentence is a gerund or not. In grammar of a sentence, any verb with 'ing' adding to it is a continuous tense, it may be past continuous or present continuous or future continuous. So all verbs ending 'ing' are not gerunds. Because every verb in continuous tense should come with an auxiliary verb, for example, he is going to temple. So to differentiate whether one word is gerund, it should not be with auxiliary. If it has one auxiliary verb with it, then it is continuous verb. Okay.

In the next lesson, we will see about gerunds and its combinations.

Omission of 'To' in a Sentence

Free Medical Transcription Course blog's next lesson is centralizing the idea of what is if we omit 'To' in a sentence in English Grammar. In this post we would learn in further of “omission of to” in an infinitive – verb. A sentence which has an infinitive –verb generally divided into two parts. The are S-A-V-O/C and infinitive part.  Ex: - The teacher allowed the students “to read in the class”.
The above sentence consists of two objects, they are the S-A-V part and the other the infinitive part.
In some cases the object may combine with the infinitive part.  Ex: - “Shah had forgotten to tell you the good result”.  So each part has a verb, the two verbs are normal verb and the infinitive – verb.

If the first verb happens to be LET, FEEL, DARE, SEE, WATCH, HEAR, MAKE or HAVE  and the sentence is in the structure of S-A-V-O then the preposition “to” is to be omitted.
1. You may let your daughter walk with us.
Here LET is the first verb. If there is an infinitive – verb in the other part, then “to” must be omitted.

1. His brother will not let him go to the circus today.
2. The advocate will definitely make you submit a suit for his case.
3. We have seen her climb big heights.
4. I felt our relationship break into two parts.
5. How dare you date my sister out without my permission?
6. Yes, I had seen her take the saree from the box.
9. Father  hasn’t watched me go to cinema.

There are special verbs like help and enable. They may be followed by an infinitive verb with or without “to”.
1. “He helped us to push the car.” Or, “He helped us push the car.”
2. “He enabled us to push the car.” Or, “He enabled us push the car.”

In the next post we would learn about the “usage of infinitive –verb with HOW, WHAT, WHEN, WHERE and WHICH.

Infinitive Verbs in English Grammar

In the blog of free medical transcription course, we will learn some of the topics of this infinitive. For the duration of the action, we mention some of the rules of the verbs are it either in the normal form or in the continuous form. For example ‘to sit’ is in the normal form but ‘to be sitting’ is in the continuous form. Like this change in the infinitive portion of a sentence and the structure which is in the S-A-V form, some examples are given below: 
1. My parents have asked me to be waiting here for them.
2. We told our children not to be quarreling with each other while we were away.
3. I have to be sitting here till my brother returns from work.
4. She didn’t like to be waiting after a long time with her return from the piligrimage.

When we have to use two infinitive – verbs in a sentence, one may be in normal form and the second in continuous form, as shown in the following examples:

  1. We will not have ‘to be practising’ for hours to catch the Principal’s eye.
  2. Did you join this organization only ‘to be serving’ your boss to get a mere certificate?

Infinitive verb as a connective: We can use an infinitive – verb to connect two simple sentences. In a complex sentence type this connective does not do the job of a conjunction. The new sentence so connected by an infinitive – verb remains a simple single sentence. Now let us come across the sentences.

1. “The poor student did not have ten paise with him. He could not buy a pen”.

We can combine the above two simple sentences into a single sentence. In the same manner, we combine the following pairs into a single sentence by using a suitable or perfect infinitive – verb.
1. Every football team has a captain. He directs the other players.
This sentence can be written as “Every football team has a captain to direct the other players”.
2. The thief took out a knife. He frightened the shop keeper.
This sentence can be written as “The thief took out a knife to frighten the shop keeper.”
  1. Our small brother will do as he pleases. We allow him.
This sentence can be written as “We allow our small brother to do as he pleases”.

We can combine two sentences with an infinitive verb only if the verb concerned is common to both the sentences. The following pair cannot be combined since there is no common verb of action between them.

In the next post we would learn about the “omission of “to” in an infinitive –verb.
