The prefix Dia means = Apart

The key idea with being able to memorize med terms and vocabulary words is the create pictures for those words.

 

Just take both the picture for the word and the picture for the meaning or definition and visualize an interaction between the two as we did above.

dia- = apart

dia- = sun with sombrero (Dia means day in Spanish. I normally use a Mexican sombrero to let me know that I’m using the Spanish version of the image that is associated for that word)
apart = tearing apart

Story: The sun is tearing itself apart
