I know that die Kleidung is derived from kleiden by removing -en and adding ung. Therefore, I expect die Bekleidung is derived from bekleiden. However, it seems that this word is not so common.
I want to know
- whether bekleiden is a commonly used word
- the difference between the meaning of bekleiden and that of kleiden
- the difference between the meaning of die Bekleidung and that of die Kleidung
Thanks so much
