Comprehension of Fundamental
Word Structure
• Medical terminology is the study of terms
that are used in the art and science of
medicine.
• Because of advances in scientific
computerized technology, many new
terms are coined daily; however, most of
these terms are composed of word parts
that have their origins in ancient Greek or
Latin.

Fundamentals of Word Structure
• The fundamental elements in medical
terminology are the component parts used
to build medical words.
• The abbreviations used for component
parts in this text are P for prefix, R for root,
CF for combining form, and S for suffix.

Prefix
• Prefix means to fix before or to fix to the
beginning of a word.
• A prefix can be a syllable or a group of
syllables placed at the beginning of a word
to alter or modify the meaning of the word
or to create a new word.
Medical Terminology: A Word-Building Approach, Seventh Edition

Word Root
• A root is a word or word element from
which other words are formed.
• It is the foundation of the word and
conveys the central meaning of the word.
• It forms the base to which prefixes and
suffixes are attached for word
modification.
Medical Terminology: A Word-Building Approach, Seventh Edition

Combining Form
• A combining form is a word root to which a
vowel has been added to link the root to
the suffix or to another root.
• The vowel o is used more often than any
other to make combining forms.

Suffix
• Suffix means to fasten on, beneath, or
under.
• A suffix can be a syllable or group of
syllables united with or placed at the end
of a word to alter or modify the meaning of
the word or to create a new word.

Principles of Component Parts
• As you learn definitions for prefixes, roots,
combining forms, and suffixes, you will
discover that some component parts have
the same meanings as others, which can
be traced to differences in the Greek or
Latin words from which they originated.
Medical Terminology: A Word-Building Approach, Seventh Edition

Principles of Component Parts
• Most of the terms for the body's organs
originated from Latin words, whereas
terms describing diseases that affect these
organs have their origins in Greek.
Medical Terminology: A Word-Building Approach, Seventh Edition

Identification of Medical Words
• You will learn to distinguish among and
select the appropriate component parts for
the meaning of the word.
Medical Terminology: A Word-Building Approach, Seventh Edition

Spelling
• Medical words of Greek origin are often
difficult to spell because many begin with a
silent letter or have a silent letter within the
word.
• Correct spelling is extremely important in
medical terminology because the addition
or omission of a single letter can change
the meaning of the word.

Spelling
• Follow these guidelines for building and
spelling medical words:
– If the suffix begins with a vowel, drop the
combining vowel from the combining form
and add the suffix.
– If the suffix begins with a consonant, keep the
combining vowel and add the suffix to the
combining form.
– Keep the combining vowel between two or
more roots in a term.

Use of Abbreviations
• An abbreviation is a process of shortening
a word or phrase into appropriate letters.
• It is used as a form of communication in
writing and documenting data.
• If there is any question about which
abbreviation to use, it is best to spell out
the word or phrase and not use an
abbreviation.

Pronunciation
• A single accent mark (') is called a primary
accent and is used with the syllable that
has the strongest stress.
• A double accent mark (") is called a
secondary accent and is given to syllables
that are stressed less than primary
syllables.

Pronunciation
• Diacritics are marks placed over or under
vowels to indicate the long or short sound
of the vowel.
– Macron ( ¯ ) – the long sound of the vowel.
– Breve ( ˘ ) – the short sound of the vowel.
– Schwa ( ə ) – indicates the uncolored, central
vowel sound of most unstressed syllables.
