-ology

表示"知识、科学的分支"的构词元素,现在是 -logy 的常用形式。19世纪最初用于非词组( commonsensology ,等等),由于受到 geologymythology ,等等中的适当形式的影响,它获得了合法性,其中 -o- 是前一个元素中的一个词干元音。

The second element is prop[erly] -logy ( -logue , etc.), the -o- belonging to the preceding element; but the accent makes the apparent element in E[nglish] to be -ology , which is hence often used as an independent word. [Century Dictionary]
