The meaning of "der Ohrwurm"

A quick look at one of those cool German words that made it onto pretty much all BuzzFeed “German words English should import” lists :).


Word Family

Root: *ous-

This root pretty much hasn’t changed and originally meant

ear

There seem to be no other offspring besides the words for ear in various European languages.
The branch around audio seems like it would make sense if it were related, but it can be traced to a different root.
