Word of the Day - "verschwinden"

A fun look at the German word for to disappear and what it has to do with wasting time, lying and vertigo... yup, they're all connected :)


verschwinden, Schwund, Geschwindigkeit, verschwenden

Word Family

The core idea of the root was:

healthy, fit

The only English family member I could find mentioned in the sources is sound in the sense of proper – like in safe and sound.
The German gesund is essentially this, but with the ge-prefix, because why not.
