   Mnemonics (Memory Aids) for amorphous

In Greek 'morphe' means shape/form. So, amorphous(a + morph + ous) means 'without shape/shapeless'. Similarly 'morphing' means shaping(the original). 'Metamorphosis' = Change in form/nature

amorphous = a[morf]us = on reversing morf become --> a+form+us i.e something without form.. or something lacking shape..

Alas! I can't creat any mnemonic for this word! Because the word 'Amorphous' has no distinct shape.

morph= change shape amorphous = no shape

amorphous-a+morp(marpu)+us....in telugu marpu means change in smthng...so the word itself says dat it is filled with a change or formless.
