Word Family

Root: *sreu-

The core idea of this root was:

flowing

It’s pretty well preserved in English stream and its German brother der Strom.
Other family members are the Latin serum and the Greek based and rhythm (“flow”). And the words around rheumatic also belong here, which originally were based on a word for “discharge” of bodily fluids.
