It seems there are two main meanings for the verb kehren. Wiktionary lists two separate etymologies (from two or three separate Old High German ancestor words that look very similar):
- to sweep
- to turn
Do native speakers consider these two meanings to be connected or related somehow? If so, how?
Or is this considered to be a verb which coincidentally has two wholly separate, unrelated meanings that have (one way or another) converged on a single word in the present day?
Note that I'm not asking so much about historical etymological details, rather whether present-day native german speakers consider the two meanings (to sweep & to turn) to be related or similar in concept or meaning.
As a native English speaker, I would probably say I would consider these two verbs to be mostly, if not entirely unrelated in English. (Whether I'm actually right about that, I don't know, but that's not really what I'm curious about here. I'm curious about common present-day perception.) So I'm curious if German speakers feel the same or differently.
