ATTENUATE

Ah-ten-you-ayte

Cripple; reduce; weaken;

Making smaller and lessening.

Your fears will attenuate and you will be brave.

The rain will quickly attenuate our fire. No marshmallows would be roasted today.

Atten - uate
Atten (Reminds) Attention
Uate (Reminds) You ate

Memory Trick: Attention you ate becomes smaller.
