Contributor(s): Mark Johnson

The suffix terbo appears in the V.32terbo modem protocol and indicates the third version of the V.32 protocol. Terbo is an invented word based on the Old Latin ter meaning "three times" and the word turbo (Latin for "whirling top" or "whirlwind") meaning "speed."

Also see bis, a suffix used in several modern protocols that means "second version."
