"auffallen" looks like an oxymoron - "to fall up". But it's actually a really useful translation for "to notice". Today, we'll learn why. Also: more verbs :)
auffallen, auffällig, die Auffälligkeit, unauffällig
fallingIt doesn't have any other relatives besides to fall and fallen (and "to fell" and "fällen") in German and English and it is notably absent from the Latin branch of the Indo-European family. There, the word for falling was *kadere, which is the origin of words like cadence, incident or case.
