BiologyEdit

A number of "-phobia/-phobic" terms are used in biology to describe predispositions by plants and animals against certain conditions. See for antonyms in "Biology" section of the "-phil-" article.

Ethnic/national/religious phobiasEdit

One can readily use the suffix "-phobia" to coin a term that denotes a particular anti-ethnic sentiment, such as Francophobia. Often a synonym with the prefix "anti-" already exists: polonophobia vs. anti-Polonism. See "List of anti-ethnic terms" for more examples. Anti-religous sentiments are expressed in terms Christianophobia and Islamophobia.
