A fun look at the meaning of "der Raum", because the nouns and verbs based on it fill up a big room. Today, we'll go in and tidy up a that chaos :) (hint, hint)
der Raum, Raum-, das Zimmer, räumen, aufräumen, umräumen
The core idea of this root was:
(wide) open space
It’s the origin of English room and the originally Latin branch around rural.
The word to roam probably doesn’t belong to this family.
