Word of the Day - "der Staub"

A fun look at the family of "der Staub", which goes all the way from air pollution to bargains. We’ll learn lots of cool, useful words and see some crazy connection to English.

Vocab:

der Staub, Staubsauger, staubig, einstauben, abstauben, stöbern, der Dampf, der Duft


Word Family

Root: *dhem(ə)

The core idea of this root was:

blowing, wafting, smoke

The only English relative that I could find mention of is damp.
The idea of the German dunkel (dark) came from smoke clouding the view.
