To run is correr in Spanish. Now while this word might sound completely alien to your English ears, it’s actually quite the opposite. You see, correr descends from the same Latin roots that give us words like courier and course. And other than the similarity in how they sound, you can easily make out that both courier and course have something to do with running. Back in the day, a courier would literally race against time to deliver his payload. At the same time, a course is what you would typically follow along while running a race. This is what electricity does when running as a current, yet another derivative from the ancestors of correr, through a wire. Will you ever forget correr now? Was it fun learning the word? How long did it take?
