I feel like that guy in Matrix, Neo, like I've seen the code behind language. The more words I learn, the more of their origins I discover, the more transparent all languages become, English, Russian, doesn't matter.
This is blowing my mind. So, I was looking up etymology and meanings for "undulate," and there is a whole family of words that come from one single PIE root "unda" which means "wave" and is related to "water" which in Russian is "voda" which makes it easy for me to decode other words. Look how many:
Undulation (wavy), inundation (an overflowing), redundant (be over-full), and (thereupon), undine (water spirit), abound (overflow), surround (to flood), vodka (little water).
Wow. Just wow.
