I am wondering in which way beschweren ( as in sich beschweren) is derived:
- be-schwer-en, where the root is the adj. schwer
- be- Schwere-n, where the root is the noun Schwere
This question involves elements of both etymology and morphology. My major intent lies in an etymological interpretation of the lexical meaning of sich beschweren. On the other hand, such an etymological approach to lexical meaning is grounded upon morphological facts in this case, so morphological arguments will be as welcome as those of etymology.
