2.1.12.39 ventral + lateral =
ventrolateral
Notice that several of the terms can be combined both directions, such as inferoposterior and posteroinferior. Fortunately, in transcription you do not have to decide which one should come first, simply type it in the order dictated. You should, however, join terms into one if the dictator says “in the anterior posterior direction.” It is incorrect to designate them separately if they are obviously intended as one direction. For example, “in the anterior/posterior direction.”
