Word Family

Root: *del- (2)

The core idea of this root was:

telling, counting

In English, it has focused on the aspect of narration and grew into words like to tell, tale, and to talk.

The German verbs zählen and zahlen have focused more on numbers, but the notion of narrating is still visible in erzählen for example, which means to tell.
