  Cata  \Cat"a\  [Gr.  kata`.] 
  The  Latin  and  English  form  of  a  Greek  preposition,  used  as  a 
  prefix  to  signify  down  downward,  under  against,  contrary  or 
  opposed  to  wholly,  completely;  as  in  cataclysm,  catarrh.  It 
  sometimes  drops  the  final  vowel,  as  in  catoptric;  and  is 
  sometimes  changed  to  cath,  as  in  cathartic,  catholic.
