Word of the Day - "die Wahl"

A fun look at the meaning of "die Wahl" and the verb "wählen" and the difference to "aussuchen". And a boring look at the German political system :).

Vocab:

die Wahl, wählen, wählerisch, die Auswahl


Word Family

Root: *u̯el-

The core idea of this root was:

wanting, choosing

English relatives are will and the Latin branch around volare (to want) with words like voluntary and volition.

In German, both core themes survived, one as wollen (to want) and the other one as wählen (to choose).
