The German noun 'Wurzel' translates to 'root' in English. It refers to the underground part of a plant that typically absorbs water and nutrients from the soil.

In botany, roots play a crucial role in anchoring the plant to the ground and providing support. They also store food reserves and can propagate new plants through adventitious roots.

In a figurative sense, 'Wurzel' can also be used to describe the origin or source of something, such as the root cause of a problem.
