By Princeton University
A prefix signifying under, below, beneath, and hence 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-).

By Nuttall, P.Austin.
A prefix signifying "under" or "below"; beneath; sub denotes a less or inferior degree, or an imperfect state, of the quality expressed by the word before which it is placed; for the sake of euphony, the b in sub becomes c, f, g, m, p, or s, according to the first letter of the other part of the word, as in succeed, suffer, suggest, summon, supplant, sustain.
