Word Family

Root: *sprengh-

The original idea of the root was:

to move suddenly,  to spring

The only English offspring I could find mentioned in the sources is the word spring. And all its meanings actually come from this core idea.

  • to spring (suddenly moving)
  • spring -season (where stuff begins, flowers “bursting forth”)
  • spring – source (where water “jumps out”)
  • spring – coil (something that “suddenly jumps”)
