According to the following consonant, it is variously assimilated ab-, ac-, af-, etc., or reduced to a-. See etymology.

Its use is advantageous as restricting the idea of direction to the body of the animal itself, without considering the position in which that body may be with relation to externals; since for example, what is backward in the anatomy of man when in the erect posture is upward in that of a quadruped when in the correlatively natural horizontal attitude, while in both it is equally dorsad.
