Word of the Day - "die Nase"- Special

We'll talk about anything 'nose' :). So words for the parts, verbs that relate to nose, and a whole bunch of nice idioms with "die Nase". #vocab-galore

Vocab:

die Nase, die Nasenflügel, die Nebenhöhlen, schnauben, rümpfen, der Geruch, der Gestank, die Stupsnase


Word Family

Root: *dheu-

The core idea of this root was:

dust, vapor, small swirling particles, foggy

This idea is still visible in offspring like dust, fume and typhoon.
Other words like dumb or deaf have shifted toward the notion of “clouded senses”. That’s also where typhos comes from, which was a disease that clouds the senses.
