gel-, gela-, gelati-, gelatino-, geli-, gelo-

(Latin: to freeze; frosting; cold; then, to congeal, and finally: gelatin)

Later it came to mean "to congeal"; having to do with "congealing" or with "gelatin, a protein derived from the partial hydrolysis of animal skin, connective tissue, and bone".

Don't confuse words from this Latin element with those from Greek gelo-, geloto-, meaning "laugh, laughing, laughter".

To freeze together again.
The action of freezing together again; specifically, the fusion of two pieces of ice, having moist surfaces, at a temperature above freezing-point.
