co-

co-
var. of com- before a vowel, h, and gn: coadjutor; cohabit; cognate. The prefix co- now productively forms new words from bases beginning with any sound (co-conspirator; co-manage; coseismic), sometimes with the derived sense "auxiliary, subsidiary" (coenzyme; copilot), and, in mathematics and astronomy, with the sense "complement" (codeclination).
