Word of the Day - "falls"

"falls" and "wenn" can both mean "if" in German. Today, we'll find out if there is a difference between the two and how to use "falls" properly.


Word Family

Root: *pol-

The core idea of this root was:

falling

It doesn’t have any other relatives besides to fall and fallen (and “to fell” and “fällen”) in German and English and it is notably absent from the Latin branch of the Indo-European family. There, the word for falling was *kadere, which is the origin of words like cadence, incident or case.
