The Meaning of "gelingen"

A quick look at the meaning of "gelingen" and how it is different to "schaffen". Also, a really really weird ending.

Vocab:

gelingen, gelungen, misslingen


Word Family

Root: *del-

The core idea of this root was:

long, length

The root got extended to *dlong- and the d slowly disappeared. The original sense is still very much at the center today, as you can see in offspring like long, length, longitude or elongate.
