Remembering word part -acid-

The goal of Struggling Student's Memory Guide is to develop ways to use association and mnemonic memory techniques, instead of using rote memorization, to remember educational information we can use for a lifetime.

blue emboldened words are common or college terms that can be used for word association purposes.

reddish brown emboldened words are medical terms that should be looked up in a medical dictionary for their figurative meanings.

-acid-, -acidi-, -acido- from L. acidus, sharp, sour, means "sharp, sour". [acid, sour, sharp, or biting to taste, acidify, lit making acid, fig. to convert into an acid, acidemia, lit. blood acid condition, acidosis, lit. acid state or condition, aciduria, lit. acid urine condition, hyperacid, lit. excessive or beyond normal acid, peracid, Chem.] (see -ac-)
[No memory story necessary for this blog but we'll make up for it tomorrow when we do five word parts at the same time in a memory story.]
