Online Biology Dictionary is a free, concise, illustrated dictionary of biology and medicine. On this page you can search the dictionary of suffixes and prefixes (Suffix Prefix Dictionary) with an automated search engine. You can find the meanings of a suffix or prefix by entering it in the box below and clicking the Search button. The finder will then search the dictionary and return any matches. This search engine only finds exact matches, so if you're not sure about spelling, you should look up your suffix or prefix alphabetically.

Enter your search term here (check spelling):

Search for prefixes >>
Search for suffixes >>
Look up definitions of bio terms >>
Find the meanings of prefixes and suffixes >>
Find the meanings of Greek and Latin roots

You can use the search engine on this page for more than one purpose:

  1. Reverse dictionary. Enter meanings to find corresponding prefixes and suffixes (e.g., searching with the word arm will locate the prefixes brachi- and humero-, as well as the suffixes -brachial and -humeral).

  2. Find prefix/suffix meanings. Enter a prefix or suffix in the box and click the Search button. The finder will then search through the dictionary and return any matches (this search requires correct spelling; prefixes and suffixes can also be looked up alphabetically).
When you click on the Search button, links to definitions of relevant prefixes and suffixes will be displayed. Click on the links to access the information you seek.

Tip: If you don't get a result, try using a query that's a synonym (e.g., instead of carry, try searching with the word bear).

Note: This finder is provided by Google, so ads may appear beside your search results.
