Memorizing medical/scientific word part -adelph-

The goal of Struggling Student's Memory Guide is to develop ways to use association and mnemonic memory techniques, instead of 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.

-adelph- from Gr. adelphos, means "brother". [Philadelphia, lit. (city of) brotherly love, deradelphus, lit. neck brothers, heteradelphus, lit. other brothers.]

There's no memory story because the association to the common term or terms should be adequate for memory purposes.
