Prothesis (linguistics)
In linguistics , PROTHESIS (/ˈprɒθᵻsᵻs/ ; from post-classical Latin based on Ancient Greek πρόθεσις próthesis 'placing before'), or less commonly PROSTHESIS (from Ancient Greek πρόσθεσις prósthesis 'addition') is the addition of a sound or syllable at the beginning of a word without changing the word's meaning or the rest of its structure . A vowel or consonant added by prosthesis is called PROTHETIC or PROSTHETIC. Prothesis is different from the adding of a prefix, which changes the meaning of a word. Prothesis is a metaplasm , a change in spelling or pronunciation. The opposite process, the loss of a sound from the beginning of a word, is called apheresis or aphesis
