to get stuck
(Needs to be a "pinching" sort of stuck with force from two sides. NOT for getting stuck in traffic or a car getting stuck in snow. That would be "hängen bleiben" or "stecken bleiben".Often used reflexively if part of your body gets stuck somewhere.)

Root: *glei-

The core idea of this root was:

sticky, sticking

It’s the origin of glue, clay, clod and clammy  as well as the protein gluten (because it’s what makes flour sticky) and a few other Latin based words.
