1. Four Word PartsWord RootsSuffixPrefixCombining Vowel

2. Word RootContains the core of the word; functional meaningEx.: play/er play is word root arthr/itis arthr is word root hepat/itis hepat is word root

3. SuffixA word part attached to the end of a word root to modify meaningEx.: play/er er is suffix hepat/ic ic is the suffix hepat/itis itis is the suffixNot all medical terms have a suffix

4. PrefixWord part attached to the beginning of the word root to modify it’s meaning.Ex.: re/play re is the prefix sub/hepat/ic sub is the prefixNot all medical terms have a prefix

5. Combining VowelWord part, usually an o used between two word roots OR between a word root and a suffix to ease pronunciation.The combining vowel is not used between a prefix and a word root.Ex.: therm/o/meter arthr/o/pathy

6. Combining Vowel Guideline #1When connecting a word root and suffix; a combining vowel is not usually used. Even if vowels are present at the junction.Ex.: hepat/icSuffix begins with I; no combining vowel is used

7. Combining Vowel Guideline #2When conntecting two word roots; combining vowel is usually used even if vowels are present at the junction.Ex.: oste/o/arthr/itisO is the combining vowel, even though oste ends with an e and word root arthr begins with an aCombining vowels ease pronunciation; therefore, not all terms have combining vowels

8. Combining FormA word root with the combining vowel attached, seperated by a diagonal line.Ex.: arthr/o oste/ ven/oCombining form is NOT a word part; it is a presentation of two word parts
