Yes! That's what he said!
At least if you read it (as I did) as "If an affix is called a suffix
when it occurs at the end of the word, a prefix when it occurs at the
start, and an infix when it occurs in the middle, ..." -- that is,
"there are groups of morphemes called, collectively, 'affixes'; some
of these occur only at the beginning of words, and are called
'prefixes' to distinguish them from other affixes [etc.]".
