That's cool, I wonder if that is the root of the word hinder in English?

I like forhindre for this reason, too. My dictionary says the English word hinder is of Germanic origin and traces it through middle and old English. I would guess that hinder and forhindre have a common, older root. I often feel like Danish sounds a bit like Shakespearean English.

Is there a way of preventing it -- sounds more natural in English but it's not acceptable on duolingo

Hvorfor kan man sige- "Er der en måde TIL at forbindre det?"
