@charlyblack @aparrish Nice one.

I've been digging into truth, information, trust, etc. There the curious element is how *physical* so many terms are. To in-form. Trust: like a beam.

@dredmorbius oh I see that truth shares the origin with Norwegian trygd, maybe now I'll remember it (trying to learn Norwegian..)
this physicality that you point out can be very helpful in language learning, once you find it out for a certain class of words :)
