Word of the Day - "sorgen - prefixed"

A fun look at the meaning of "sorgen" and its prefix version and what worry has to do with getting some beer.

Vocab:

sorgen, die Sorge, versorgen, besorgen, besorgt


Word Family

Root: *swergh-

The core idea of this root was:

worrying, being sick, taking care of someone sick

The only English family member I could find in the sources is sorrow.
Sorry and sore, even though they would fit in here, come from a different root that was about suffering.
