Medical Terminology Online


Online Medical Terminology Reference Medical terminology is the language used to accurately describe the human body, including its components, processes, conditions that affect it and the procedures performed in it. Medical terminology is used in the field of medicine.Notable aspects of medical terminology include the use of Greek and Latin terms and regular morphology, with the same suffixes and prefixes used quite consistently for a particular meaning. This regular morphology means that once you learn a reasonable number of morphemes, it is easy to understand very precise terms assembled from these morphemes. Much of the medical language is anatomical terminology, which refers to itself with the names of various parts of the body.Medical terminology often uses words created using prefixes and suffixes in Latin and ancient Greek. In medicine, its meanings and its etymology are informed by the language of origin. The prefixes and suffixes, mainly in Greek, but also in Latin, have a dro - o -. The medical roots are generally in accordance with the language: the Greek prefixes go with Greek suffixes and the Latin prefixes with Latin suffixes. Although it is technically considered acceptable to create hybrid words, it is very preferable not to mix different lingual roots. Examples of well-accepted medical words that mix lingual roots are neonatology and quadriplegia.
