Is there a resource where we might look words up and see their root break-down?

http://vandale.nl/opzoeken might be useful? It's a Dutch dictionary which also has a NL-EN function. In the NL-NL mode there's a breakdown of the syllables of the word and the syllable which gets the emphasis (stressed) is identified

edit This question might be more suitable for the general Dutch discussion btw ;)

And that's true haha! I just asked here because I was wondering what the origin of toestemming was. A stem is a vote. Maybe it's a vote that allows someone to do something, or something like that! Knowing that information helps me retain vocabulary.
