Interested in Language
Once a moderator told me not to ask prescribed texts in the forum. But after I checked the meaning of "prescribed" in the dictionaries, I couldn't understand what a prescribed text is.
1. to say what medicine or treatment a sick person should have.
2. to state officially what should be done in a particular situation.
In spite of knowing the meaning I don't know what "prescribed texts" are. Would you please be kind enough to clarify it to me?

I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
