Word of the Day - "liegen"

A fun look at the various meanings of "liegen" and how to use the super common phrasing "liegen an".

Word Family

Root: *legh-

The core idea of this root was:

laying, lying down

of course the verbs to lay and to lie belong here, but the root is also the origin of law, lair, ledger, allay and low.  And of lager, which is essentially a German word that means storage.
