- Forming words related to men or people.
Combining form of Ancient Greek ἄνθρωπος (anthrōpos, “man, human”), in English found within complete loanwords from Greek and Latin only, since the second half of the 16th century (anthropography, anthropophagi). Not productive in English, but some words are based on medieval or early modern Latin coinages, e.g. anthroposophy, from Renaissance-era Latin anthroposophia.
