You say the Gate is like the emitter of a BPolar device; I believe you mean to say it is like the Base of a BPolar device.

Also, in your decrete device cross section (figure a), I think you have the Source and Gate switched.

I can't find where it is in the text, but yes you are right.

Also, in your decrete device cross section (figure a), I think you have the Source and Gate switched.
And the diagram is http://www.allaboutcircuits.com/vol_3/chpt_2/9.html#03303.png - yes you are again correct that the source and gate are the wrong way round on the first (a) diagram.

Thanks for the corrections.

Thanks Unregistered user for pointing out the errors. I have made the following changes to the ibiblio master copy:

From:
The gate is analogous to the emitter of a BJT.
To:
The gate is analogous to the base of a BJT.

Image 03303.png has been fixed.
