    Re: prefix

    In Latin it means head, according to this source: Yahoo! Answers - PREFIX MEANING?!?!?!?! Capit-?.

    The Latin verb root capio means to seize, take, choose / attack, injure / comprehend.
    Latin Dictionary

    Does that help?

    Re: prefix

    Head is caput( capitis) in Latin. Capio is among other meanings to seize, comprehend. No word prefixed camio comes to my mind . there is this word capias (sheriff) charged of arresting someone from capio, capere to take.
