Word of the Day - "Rücken"

A fun look at the meaning of the noun "Rücken" and the verb "rücken" (which is different) all its related words. Special guest: krass.

Vocab:

der Rücken, zurück, rückwärts, Rück-, rücken, abrücken, verrückt, krass


Word Family

Root: *der-

This root is not 100% certain (in a a sense that etymologists feel like they don’t have enough evidence to call it a a certain “thing”), but the core idea of it would be:

walking, making steps

And it’s the origin of English to tread, trap and trip.
