often, in an inferior position or degree, in an imperfect
or partial state, as in subscribe, substruct, subserve,
subject, subordinate, subacid, subastringent, subgranular,
suborn. Sub- in Latin compounds often becomes sum- before
m, sur before r, and regularly becomes suc-, suf-, sug-,
and sup- before c, f, g, and p respectively. Before c, p,
and t it sometimes takes form sus- (by the dropping of b
from a collateral form, subs-).

compound) signified by the term to which it is prefixed,is
present in only a small proportion, or less than the
normal amount; as, subsulphide, suboxide, etc. Prefixed to

subacetate or basic acetate. [Obsoles.]
