Word of the Day - "reichen"

A thorough look at the meaning and grammar of "reichen" and what "handing" has to do with "being enough" and "areas".


reichen, ausreichen, erreichen, der Bereich, hinreichend, ausreichend

Word Family

Root: *reig-

The core idea of this root was:

stretching out, reaching out, stiffening

A good mental image is reaching out the arm.

It’s the origin of reach and reichen as well as the words rigor and rigid.
