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.
