An Excerpt from the course on Medical Terminology

A syllable placed at the end of a root word to modify its meaning is called a suffix.  When a suffix is written alone, a hyphen precedes it, indicating that another word part will be added before to form a complete word.

For example, the suffix –itis means “inflammation.”  The root word gastr means “stomach.” Combining the root word and suffix results in the medical term gastritis, which means “inflammation of the stomach.”
