The meaning of " steigen"

A thorough look at the meaning of "steigen" and it's prefix versions, which are crucial if you want to use transportation in Germany :). Also: steigern.

Vocab:

steigen, einsteigen, aussteigen, steigern, die Steigerung, versteigern


Word Family

Root: *steigh-

The core idea of this root was:

walking, striding upward

The most notable English relative is the noun stair,  but the root is also the origin of stickler, which originally was about putting on a base, and hemistich and stoichiometry.  Which are both words I had no clue about. The first one has something to do with poetry and the second one with chemistry, bit the common theme is “layering rows“. Kind of like stairs :).

In German, steigen and its relatives are the only members I could find.
