11 OBJECTIVES Identify and define the four word parts Identify and define a combining formAnalyze and define medical termsBuild medical terms for given definitions
12 Understand the Content of Chapter 1 Before Moving on to Chapter 2 Chapter 1 is the most important chapter in the text because it is here that you are introduced to word parts—word roots, prefixes, suffixes, and combining vowels—and the rules for combining them to build medical terms.You will use this information in each of the subsequent chapters to analyze, build, define, and spell terms built from word parts
13 Medicine Has a Language of Its Own Current medical vocabulary includes terms built from Greek and Latin word parts, eponyms, acronyms, and terms from modern language
15 The 4 Word Parts Word Root: Fundamental meaning of a medical term Prefix: Attached to beginning of a medical term to modify its meaningSuffix: Attached to end of a medical term to modify its meaningCombining Vowel: Used to ease pronunciation - usually an “o” (e, i, or u)
16 Examples Word Roots: arthr: joint hepat: liver ven: vein oste: bone Prefixes: intra-: within sub-: underSuffixes: -itis: inflammation -ic: pertaining to-ous: pertaining to -pathy: diseaseCombining vowel: o
17 Combining Form Word Root + Combining Vowels Examples: arthr/o hepat/o ven/o oste/oExamples of word parts and combining vowel in useP WR S P WR S WR CV WR Ssub/hepat/ic intra/ven/ous oste/o/arthr/itis
18 Some Basic Rules All medical terms have at least one word root Not all medical terms have a prefix, suffix, or combining vowelCombining vowels are used to connect word roots or word root and suffixWhen a suffix begins with a vowel, the combining vowel is not usedExample: arthritis (“o”)
19 Some Basic Rules (cont’d) When connecting two word roots, a combining vowel is usually used even if vowels are present at the junctionExample: oste/o/arthr/itisUsually medical terms are defined by starting at the end of the term and going back to the beginningExample: oste/o/arthr/itis─inflammationof the bone and joints
20 Some Basic Rules (cont’d) A few terms are more easily and accurately defined by starting at the beginning of the term.Example: melan/omamelan = black-oma = tumor
