Advent Calendar 23 - "50 Shades of Dumb"

Vocab:

der Trottel, der Schwachmat, der Honk, der Depp


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.
