WARM-UP: WHAT ARE SOME PARTS OF A TRAIN? HOW DO THESE PARTS WORK TOGETHER TO CREATE ONE UNIT?
Introduction to Veterinary Medical Terminology Building Blocks of Words
It’s all Greek to me! Some may say that veterinarians speak Greek, they are right! Latin or Greek Most terms used in veterinary medicine are based on Latin or Greek. Latin is the universal language of medicine and the Greeks were the founders of modern medicine.
The Linking Parts The key to learning terminology is to break down each word into parts and learn the most common roots, prefixes, suffixes, and combing forms.
Word Structure Root Word Root Word Combining Form Prefix Prefix Suffix
Root Word This word part usually indicates the involved body part. Acts as the foundation of most medical terms. There can be more than one in a word (“compound word”). Root words are like box cars, carrying cargo on a train. Without the box cars, together with the engine there is not a complete train.
Word Structure Root Word Combining Form Combining Form Prefix Suffix
Word Structure: Combining Form Vowel commonly used: “o” General Rule 1: If the suffix starts with a consonant, connect the rootword and the suffix with the vowel “o”. Example 1: Root Word +CV Suffix New word ol o Cardi+-o- -logyCardi o logy “Heart”study of Study of the heart
Word Structure: Combining Vowel General Rule 2: If the suffix starts with a vowel (a,e,i,o,u) DO NOT USE the vowel “o”. Just attach the suffix to the root word. Example 2: Root Word+ Suffix New word osis Hepat/o-osis Hepatosis liver -disease process - disease process in the liver
Word Structure: Combining Vowel General Rule 3: If the suffix begins with the same vowel as the root word, DO NOT repeat the vowel. Example 3: Root Word+ Suffix New word ii i Cardi -itis Card i tis heart -inflammation of - inflammation of the heart
Word Structure Root Word Combining Vowel Prefix Prefix Suffix
Prefix Alone they have some meaning, but they are not complete words without the rest of the word parts. Usually indicates location, time, number, or status. This always comes at the beginning of word. They are like the train’s engine, it leads the train and announces the coming train.
Exercise on Prefixes ________ biotic (against life) ________ thermia (high temperature) ________ horn (remove the horn) a-, an- (without or not having) anti - (against) brady- (slow) contra- (against, opposed) de- (remove, take away, loss of) dys- (difficult, troubled) pyo - (pus) hyper- (high)
Word Structure Root Word Combining Form Prefix Suffix Suffix
Suffix Written AFTER a root word to form a new word. Follows root word altering the words meaning. Determines if word is a noun, adjective or other type of word. Like a caboose, on a train, it is always comes at the end of a word.
Word Structure: Suffix Example: Root Word+SuffixNew word Tonsil+-itis Tonsilitis -itis = inflammation ofInflammation of the tonsils

You will receive several cards. Some will be meanings some will be prefixes, roots and/or suffixes. 1- Find the match for each word. 2- For each match, determine if it is a prefix, root word or suffix. 3-Place the cards on the appropriate marker in the room.
What word is the most challenging for you to remember? On a sheet of colored paper, create a picture, story or interesting way to remember the meaning of this challenging word.
Review: Word Structure Where can you find a prefix in a word? What is a Root Word? Create a compound word Where can you find a suffix in a word? What is the most commonly used vowel? a. If first letter of suffix = consonant? b. If first letter of suffix is = vowel? c. If first letter of suffix = last letter of RW?
