Where did Esperanto get the word "dungas" from? I don't recognize it at all. Is it related to "dungarees" which are perhaps work pants?
I found in an etymological dictionary: dungi = Yid. dingn, Ger. dingen. Don't ask me where the u comes from, though.
Interestingly, according to the Wiktionary, dingen in German means:
(literary) to hire for a crime
(archaic) to hire (in general)
Perhaps from the past participle, "gedungen".
As you write, the verb is pretty old-fashioned in German now.
When I see this sentence, I can't not imagine "the boss" as a mafia leader.
Where does "Estro" come from? I'm having quite the time coming up with an easy way to remember it..... oh yeah, estrogen. Nevermind, i got it.
Wiktionary says "possibly from the ending of Italian maestro"
Thats why we should take over the companies and run them without oppressors!
thats too bad.
