I have a question about the importance of context in German language.
The phrase I'm interested in is the word Verschwinden. My understanding is that Verschwinden on its own would mean something like disappearance, however when put with a word like müssen, e.g. müssen verschwinden, it becomes "must disappear".
My question is, did the two (slightly) different meanings of a word like verschwinden com about because the context had a serious effect on the meaning of it? Or am I totally missing the bigger picture about why the same word is being used both as a verb and as a noun?
