ology

This ROOT-WORD is the Suffix OLOGY which means STUDY OF, SCIENCE OF & THEORY OF. OLOGY is a compound Suffix: it is a combination of O which means OF and LOGY which means STUDY, SCIENCE & THEORY. If you wish to add to you OLOGY you will have no trouble in doing so. There seems to be an endless list of them. I doubt whether there is a single individual in the world who cannot find an OLOGY that relates to his interests.
