You most likely know that the German word ‘mit’ means with (and is followed by the dative). But did you also know, that if you add the three letters ‘mit’ to certain verbs, you’ll end up with a nice list of new verbs. The same happens if you add ‘Mit’ to certain nouns.
As you can see, most nouns with the extra ‘Mit’ turn into a fellow, co or joint somebody/ something. But some nouns change a little more!
EDIT August 2021: I just found another one
Gift – poison _____ Mitgift – dowry
Just like with the nouns, the verbs & mit change into doing something WITH others, except the few exceptions again!
PS. Did you notice they are all separable verbs now?
This just leaves the question: How will you use one or more of these nouns and verbs in your German learning this week?
