Word Family

The original idea of this family was:

flowing, gliding

And it could be a liquid as well as a flowing motion in the air.
Here’s an (incomplete) list of English members of the family. You’ll see that most of them are about a “continuous motion” in or of liquid or in air.

  • flow
  • float
  • flood
  • fleet
  • fly
  • flee
  • flight
  • pulmonary (Originally: the body part that floats)
  • pneumonia
