Transcript of AH 151 Chapter 1

A suffix is a word part that is at the end of a word.
A suffix modifies or clarifies the medical meaning of the combining form.
A suffix is a single letter or group of letters that begins with a hyphen.
All Medical words have a suffix
examples: -al, -ic, -ectomy

Combining form
The foundation of a word
Gives the word its main medical meaning.
Has a root, a forward slash, a combining vowel, and a final hyphen
All medical words contain combining form
Sometimes a medical word contains two or more combining forms, one right after the other
Examples: cardi/o-, derm/o-

no prefix
combining form: cardi/o- heart

cardi/o- + -logy = cardiology
if the suffix begins with a consonant then you keep the combining vowel

pericardial
suffix: -al pertaining to
prefix; peri- around
combining form: cardi/o- heart

peri- + cardi/o- + -al = pericardial
If the suffix begins with a vowel then you drop the
cardi/o- the combining vowel is o and the suffix -al begins with a vowel so you drop the o in cardi/o- so it makes it cardial not cardioal
