Diese Kisten sind empfindlich.

Is there a logic behind the meaning of this word? The verb “empfinden” means to feel, sense, or perceive. So I guess “empfindlich” means sensitive in the sense of easily feeling things, and it’s a close association from here to meanings like “sensitive” and “delicate”, as with a person, and then from there, “fragile” as in an object that is easily broken? I guess I answered my own question?

yes, that is what you did :slight_smile:
