Remembering word medical part amelo-

Struggling Student's Memory Guide uses association and mnemonic techniques to help students recall information quickly and retain it longer without using rote memorization.

blue emboldened words are common or college terms that can be used for association purposes because they share the same word part with other medical terms listed.

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

amelo- from Early English amel, means "enamel". [enamel, ameloblast, lit. enameled germ cell, amelogenesis, lit. production of enamel, odontoameloblastosarcoma, lit. tooth enamel germ cell flesh tumor]

The obvious association to enamel made a memory story or mnemonic unnecessary.
