Word Family

Root: *kadh-

The original idea of this root was:

sheltering, cover

In English the hut (die Hütte), it’s about a location, in hat (der Hut) it’s a specific object and in hood (die Kapuze, der Bezirk), we have both.

The English to heed and the German hüten (to guard) have shifted toward being protective.
