Try your best to come up with the correctly spelled medical term for the following definition. Remember: You can only remove the combining “o” between a combining form and a suffix that starts with a vowel. All combining forms in the rest of the word have to remain. How do you think this word would be written? You’ll need combining forms for all the organs plus a suffix. Four word parts in all! If you find you have too many “o”s someplace you can always insert a hyphen, just don’t put it in the middle of a word part. (Don’t worry, you’ll still get 5 points if you don’t get it right. Just try!)
