Memorizing medical/scientific word part aeluro-, ailuro-

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.

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

aeluro-, ailuro- from Gr. ailuros, means "cat". [Aelurostrongylus, lit. cat round (worm), ailurophobia, lit. fear of cats condition.]

Memory Story: You allure (aeluro-, not related) a cat with a lure (ailuro-) from your fishing pole.
