The word greedy comes from the Indo-European root *gher which meant something like to like/want (source).
This is also the root for the incredibly common German word gern and other every day German words. I really let my fantasy roam freely but I was not able to find another English word with that origin. I would find this quite surprising to see that a root with such a basic meaning almost entirely vanishes. So my questions is:
Does anyone know of other words that have the same origin (no matter, if they are imports from Latin)?
