Word Family tap to show/hide
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”)
