Re: Could a daily pill become the biggest catalyst to finally ending the pandemic? - unlikely

I believe I am technically a Cydophile not Cydophyte.
 
From Dictionary.com:
 

What does -phyte mean?

The combining form -phyte is used like a suffix meaning “plant.” It is often used in scientific terms, especially in biology and botany.

The combining form –phyte comes from the Greek phytón, meaning “plant.” The Greek phytón also helps form the word neóphytos, source of the word neophyte, a “beginner” or “novice.” Neophyte literally means “newly planted” and originally referred to a newly baptized Christian.

The corresponding form of -phyte combined to the beginning of words is phyto-.

Examples of -phyte

One example of a scientific term that features the combining form -phyte is macrophyte. A macrophyte is “a plant, especially a marine plant, large enough to be visible to the naked eye.”

You might be familiar with the combining form macro-, which means “large,” among other senses. As we have seen, -phyte means “plant.” Macrophyte, then, literally translates to “large plant.”

What are some words that use the combining form -phyte?

 
And again from Dictionary.com:
 

-phile


a combining form meaning “lover of,” “enthusiast for” that specified by the initial element:Anglophile;bibliophile;demophile.
 
      Cydophile

Finally from Dictionary.com:

noun Informal.

Thanks for stopping by for your daily drive-by bashing but I've done my due diligence and am content to hold my cards.
