Material from WP
I've no confidence that my limited familiarity with Wikipedia qualifies me to edit on Wiktionary. But the following markup is the whole of a WP page that i will propose for a Vote for Deletion. Hopefully someone will merge it competantly with the existing entry.
The OED notes that in recent times, following the model of abnormal, some medical terms use ab- to mean "away from", as ab-oral, "away from the mouth".

English Etymology 1 is incorrectly stated:
The English prefix featured in this article is from Latin ab-, not Old English æf, which instead yielded Modern English of, off.
Furthermore, none of the terms (Old English, Latin, Ancient Greek, or Sanskrit) are derived from any other; rather, they are all derived from a common Proto-Indo-European adverbial *h₂epo.
Our source for this etymology is faulty and should not be referenced.
