Select all the possible suffix(es) for the following word. select
The English language is an amalgam of many different linguistic origins, but with regard to vocabulary, [ Latin and Greek are indeed ubiquitous (Latin word right there!). Greek roots like those you mention have arrived in modern English through a variety of ways. "Phil", used either as a prefix (philosophy) or a suffix (bibliophile), from the Greek word meaning love, also passed through into
Latin. For example Latin "philosophia" (love of wisdom) and "theophilus" (one beloved by God). "-logy" also came through Latin, sometimes directly, sometimes through Old French. It is from the Greek "logos" that can mean word, discourse, theory, or study, as we use it today. For example Latin "philologus" (one who loves learning, a scholar) and "theologus"(one who studies God, a theologian). "-phone" is a bit of a different story. Many words that we use today that end in "-phone" come directly from the Greek word "phone" meaning voice or sound. This is because they have been directly named by someone. When a scientist or scholar of any type makes a new discovery and needs a new word to describe it, he often goes back to Greek or Latin roots to derive this new word. For example, Thomas Edison invented the "phonograph"(phone + graphos; something that writes sound). There were obviously no telephones in ancient Greece, but they were named that after their invention many centuries later, coming from Greek "teleos" meaning "from afar" and -phone, so literally it means "voice from afar." Homophone was formed from the Greek "homos"(same) + -phone, meaning "same sound." (That's not to say all uses of "phone" in English were artificially constructed. For example "symphony" contains the root of "phone" in it, coming from Latin "symphonia", which in turn came from Greek 'syn' + 'phone', meaning "sounds working together.") ]
