German Word of the Day - "neugierig"

A fun look at the meaning of "neugierig" and what curiosity has to do with greed.

Vocab:

neugierig, die Neugier, vergesslich, neu


Word Family

The core idea of this root was:

wanting, liking

And this is still visible in the offspring  yearn, greed and charisma, though from kind of different angles.
There’s a second Indo-European *gher- but that one is unrelated and its core idea is grasping.
