Medical Terminology

(25 points, one point per answer given. Please note there are two answers needed in the Root(s) column.

As you can see in the first few pages of the text, medical terms are comprised of separate parts, or word component parts, each of which pays a role in the term’s construction and its meaning. Four basic word parts have been introduced as well as the concept of the combining form, which is the root and a combining vowel expressed as root + /o.

This assignment is presented in a grid. Follow the examples provided to deconstruct five (5) medical terms with which you are likely unfamiliar. You will need to use a medical dictionary reference to find the meaning of some of the word components. If a word component is not present in this term, indicate none or N/A in the appropriate column. Use hyphens at the end of a prefix and at the beginning of a suffix.
